House Speaker Bob Cupp’s Fair School Funding Plan represents years of work by legislators, local school leaders, and education finance experts to craft meaningful alternatives to the current way Ohio funds education. It seeks to base funding on what students need based on the actual cost of providing a high-quality education, while reducing the need for frequent property tax increases.

The Fair School Funding Plan passed the Ohio House with overwhelming bi-partisan support at the end of 2020, but the Senate failed to consider the bill before the legislative session
ended. Speaker Cupp has re-introduced the Fair School Funding Plan as House Bill 1 this session, marking its place as his top priority.

The future of this critical bill lies in the hands of your State Senator. Go to to send a letter and urge legislators to fix school funding now!
