CHAMPION, Ohio (WYTV) – Champion Local Schools and Poland Village Schools got approved Thursday for state funding to help them build new schools.
Each district has 13 months to raise their local share before the state funding is released.
Champion was approved for $17.5 million to help build a new pre-kindergarten through 8 school, but must raise $13.7 million for its local share. The school board meets in two weeks to decide how it will do that.
Poland will ask voters to approve a bond issue in November to help raise its $30 million local share for two new buildings covering kindergarten through 8th grades. It is receiving $7.1 million from the state for a new elementary and middle school.
