“Creating a modern learning environment is incredibly important in allowing our students to learn and compete in the modern economy,” Ramos said. “It is important to prioritize projects that improve opportunities for the next generation of leaders right here in Lorain County.”

The Firelands Local project will fund construction of a new middle/high school to house students in grades 6 though 12.  The state share of the project will be $6,238,379, with a local share of $26,595,193. The total cost of the project is budgeted at $32,833,572.

Districts receiving funding through the Classroom Facilities Assistance Program must acquire their local share of the project budget within a 13-month time frame before the state share can be released.

Rep. Ramos has served on the Ohio School Facilities Commission for over four years.

Ramos Proposes Tuition Coverage For Ohio College Students


As Ohio college students don their caps and gowns this month, many will leave school with mountains of debt for four-year degrees. In fact, Ohio families and students face the highest burden of student loan debt in the nation, with the Buckeye State ranking 45th nationally for college affordability. With college out of reach for too many families and students, state Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today introduced legislation to cover 90 percent of the cost for students to attend public college in Ohio. The Ohio Lets Everyone Achieve Right Now (LEARN) tax credit would make Ohio the first state to make college truly affordable for all students.
