State Rep. Bill Roemer (R-Richfield) announces that the State Controlling Board recently approved coronavirus relief funding to support local schools preparing for the beginning of the upcoming school year.
“This pandemic has negatively impacted the funding of our education system across Ohio and the nation,” said Roemer. “Today’s actions by the Controlling Board will make sure that our local schools will be taken care of as they adapt to their new environment when it comes to teaching our students and simultaneously working to combat COVID-19 in our schools.”
According to the Ohio Office of Budget and Management (OBM), the federal coronavirus relief aid can be used for a variety of needs, including protective equipment, cleaning and sanitation, and remote learning.
