SB 165 – OEA Testifies on ADC Release Bill

SB 165 (R-Manning) establishes a process by which a school district subject to Ohio’s state takeover law would be returned to local control while implementing an academic improvement plan approved by the state. At this time, the bill only applies to Lorain City Schools.

In testimony before the Senate Education Committee on May 28, 2021, OEA President Scott DiMauro urged the Senate Education Committee to include Youngstown and East Cleveland City Schools in the bill. For more information on the bill, the OEA Interested Party testimony can be viewed here.
