State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) testified before the House Committee on Transportation and Public Safety in support of House Bill 288. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Anielski, would give the Cuyahoga Heights Local School District a license plate through the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

The license plate would cost an extra $40 to the normal cost of new license plates and bear an image decided upon by the school district. Of the additional charge, the school would receive $30, which can only be used to fund emotional and mental well-being programs, determined by the administration, for the students of the district.

“I am excited to be another step closer for the Cuyahoga Heights Local School District to have its own State of Ohio license plate,” said Rep. Anielski. “The program gives the district funds that are independent of state dollars to support the mental health and emotional well-being of their students. Families and friends can support their schools by purchasing their CHLSD license plates, which in turn, support the emotional needs of their students.”

House Bill 288 is a similar to a bill passed into law earlier this year for the Independence and Brecksville/Broadview Heights School Districts. HB 288 was unanimously voted out of the committee and now moves to the floor of the Ohio House of Representatives for consideration.

“Cuyahoga Heights Schools is excited about the possibility of a license plate with the district’s logo on it,” said Tom Evans, Superintendent for Cuyahoga Heights Schools. “We are even more excited about the benefits to the emotional and mental wellbeing programs that the proceeds from the sale of the license plate will fund.  There is no greater investment in our future that the investment in our youth.  The ability to provide assistance to students with emotional and mental health needs solidifies our effort to empower our students to "reach new Heights.”
