Bill Introduced to Create Specialty License Plates with Funding to District
State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Ohio House District 6) and State Representative Mike Dovilla (R-Ohio House District 7) co-introduced a bill on September 4 that would create an additional funding source for North Royalton City Schools. With the purchase of a school district specialty license plate, the district will receive additional funding that will be designated to assist in the emotional and mental well-being of students. The bill will now need to move through the legislative process.
Under the legislation, any Ohio resident who wishes to support North Royalton City Schools can purchase the license plate, which will showcase the school’s design created by North Royalton High School students. There will be an additional charge of $40 on top of the original costs for the plate—$10 to be used by the BMV for their administrative purposes by and $30 to be directly earmarked to the corresponding schools. Purchasers of the plates shall remain anonymous from any school database, unless they complete a consent form to release their information to the schools.
“The specialty license plate for the North Royalton City Schools is a new financial mechanism in which the students will greatly benefit,” said Rep. Anielski. “I am excited to have the opportunity to assist our most precious gifts, our children, in developing into thriving empowered adults.”
“I am proud to have the North Royalton City School District participate in this meaningful initiative and thank both Representatives Anielski and Dovilla for their support,” said Superintendent Greg Gurka. “This program will help us provide services necessary to meet the social and emotional needs of our students as we work to fulfill our mission of inspiring and empowering learners.”
