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 North Royalton City 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 North Royalton City Schools District (NRCSD) to have their 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 NRCSD license plates, which in turn, support the emotional needs of their students.”

House Bill 288 is a similar 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.

“North Royalton City School District deeply appreciates House Bill 288 and Rep. Anielski’s support of it,” Said North Royalton City School District Superintendent Greg Gurka. “The social, emotional, and academic well-being of our students have always been our top priorities. These resources will give us an enhanced ability to meet the needs of our students.”
