Just as students finish up the school year, and are focused on completing final exams and beginning summer break, school administrators continue to review proposed changes to the state's educational system.
"I do look ahead to think about if this does unfold full force, what adjustments will we need to make," said Dale Lewellen, Superintendent at Bath School District.
According to the Ohio Associated Press, one of the most recent proposals is Republican Governor John Kasich's push to reduce overhead costs and direct more funds to classroom instruction.
The push is similar to what is called the 65 percent solution. At one time, several other states had required 65 percent of public education funds to be spent on classrooms. However, Standard and Poor's rated the policy ineffective.
"It's been a proven fact that it has not been effective in other states. So, why are we spending the time and money on it?" asked Omer Schroeder, Superintendent and Perry School District.
Determining what falls under classroom instruction can also be difficult to define. Do classroom computers count? How about librarians or behavior management programs?
State Representative Matt Huffman sits on the education committee. He agrees more money should be directed to teachers, but not necessarily through a legislative mandate.
"To try to have a statewide rule about that I think isn't particularly workable. So, in the end, I think well paid, high performing teachers are the best way to get quality education for our kids," said Huffman, (R) Allen County.
Whether or not this most recent proposal gains traction, superintendents say they will adapt to the rules.
"We're going to keep doing the best we can to provide the best education for our children," said Lewellen.
