State Representatives Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) and Sarah LaTourette (R-Bainbridge Township) introduced legislation that would create an additional funding source for the school district of Chagrin Falls Exempted Village.
The piece of legislation would create specialty license plates, with a special design for the entire school district. With the purchase of the specialty license plates, the school will receive additional funding that will be designated to assist in the emotional and mental well-being of the students.
Under the legislation, any Ohio resident who wishes to support the Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools can purchase the appropriate license plate, which will showcase the school’s design. There will be an additional charge of $40 on top of the original costs for the plate—$10 to be used by the DMV for administrative purposes and $30 to be directly earmarked to the Chagrin Falls Exempted Village School District. Purchasers of the plates shall remain anonymous from any school database, unless they complete a consent form to release their information to the schools.
Chagrin Falls Superintendent Bob Hunt said, “The Chagrin Falls Exempted Village School district is appreciative of the efforts made by Representative Anielski to create revenue to support the emotional health of students within our district. This legislation provides an outlet for residents to demonstrate and grow community pride while providing resources to help young people.”
“The specialty license plate for the Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools is a new financial mechanism, in which, the students will greatly benefit,” said Rep. Anielski. “I am pleased that my colleague, Representative LaTourette, recognized the opportunity to join me in assisting our most precious gifts, our children, in developing into thriving adults.”
