Governor Mike DeWine is expected to sign the state budget bill, House Bill 166, into law today. HB 166 is chock full of education provisions that extend far beyond the dollars and cents of funding allocations. Some of these provisions will have major impacts on how schools operate, while others are new proposals that, if implemented with fidelity, could significantly improve educational outcomes for students.
