COLUMBUS - 

State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) introduced legislation that would create an additional funding source for the school district of Independence. 


The piece of legislation would create specialty license plates for the entire school district. With the purchase of the specialty license plates, the school will receive additional funding that shall be designated to assist in the emotional and mental well-being of their students.


Under the legislation, any Ohio resident who wishes to support the Independence Local Schools can purchase the appropriate license plate, which will showcase the school’s design. There will be an additional charge of $40 on top of the original costs for the plate—$10 to be used by the BMV for administrative purposes and $30 to be directly earmarked to the Independence Local School District. Purchasers of the plates shall remain anonymous from any school database, unless they complete a consent form to release their information to the schools.


“The specialty license plate for the Independence Local Schools is a new financial mechanism, in which, the students will greatly benefit,” said Rep. Anielski.  “I am excited to have the opportunity to assist our most precious gifts, our children, in developing into thriving empowered adults.”


Superintendent of Independence Local Schools, Ben Hegedish, said, “The opportunity for our community to demonstrate the pride in our schools while supporting the well-rounded approach we strive for in developing our students is a great one.  I'm very excited about the Independence license plates.  They're going to look great, and the funding to support the social/emotional well-being of our kids will be a blessing."
