Cincinnati Public Schools License Plates Bill Signed Into Law
License plate will commemorate, support Ohio's third largest public school district

State Rep. Catherine D. Ingram (D-Cincinnati) today praised the signing in to law of legislation creating a new Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) license plate in support of one of Ohio’s top school districts.

“For almost 200 years, Cincinnati Public Schools have educated, inspired and prepared generations to be civic-minded, intelligent and socially aware citizens,” said Ingram. “CPS is a diverse and historic district that serves 35,000 Cincinnati-area students every year, and deserves strong community support. I am proud to introduce legislation to help benefit this wonderful district.”

Substitute Senate Bill (SB) 134 created the Cincinnati Public Schools license plate through the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, which will offer the plates for sale through local registrars’ offices. Portions of the proceeds will go directly to CPS.

The school system is gathering the required 150 signatures necessary to create a custom license plate. Once the request is approved, CPS members will design the new license plate for purchase. Local residents interested in signing the petition can contact CPS Public Affairs at (513) 363-0020 or

Senate Bill 134 will go into effect on March 23, 2018.
