Overview of School Funding

The funding of public elementary and secondary education in Ohio is a joint effort between the state and local school districts. 

Public school districts use a combination of state funds, local sources such as property taxes (and in some cases income taxes) and federal funds.

The amount of state funds that a district receives is based on a formula that takes into account the student enrollment and the property wealth of the district.
