Lordstown TPP Advocacy

Lordstown Schools currently receives nearly $1.6 million dollars in Tangible Personal Property tax reimbursements from the State of Ohio. Current law phases the entire amount over time costing our schools much needed dollars at a district that receives much less from the State of Ohio than the average school in Ohio. While Lordstown Schools provided testimony to Ohio House Committees and Ohio Senate Committees advocating for a solution to this issue that would benefit Lordstown Schools the legislature needs to hear from all stakeholders: school staff, school families, area businesses and the Lordstown Community.

You can help in one of two ways. Attached is a document titled TPP letters. This document has letters addressed to all thirty-three Ohio Senators. Also attached are the contacts for all of the senators. You can print and mail these directly to the senate offices or print and drop them off at Lordstown Schools on Friday, May 19th or Monday, May 22nd. You can also come by the school and pick up copies and return them signed to the school by 2:00 PM on Monday, May 22nd.

Members of the Class of 2017, whom have completed their classes, will be heading to the statehouse on Tuesday, May 23rd. These students will be delivering the signed letters directly to the offices of the Ohio Senators. Thank you for helping us advocate for fiscal fairness.
