MOUNT VERNON — The Ohio Department of Taxation is set to distribute casino tax money to school districts in Ohio. Knox County public, charter and virtual schools will receive roughly $20.50 per student, or a total of $199,246.88.
School districts with students residing in other counties will also receive a portion of that county’s school disbursement, which is scheduled for Jan. 31.
Centerburg schools should get about $24,240. Treasurer Ellen Scott said she will not consider the money new funds.
“We’re going to wait and see what happens with our insurance premiums,” she said. “Those keep going up. Also, we need to wait and see what happens when the new state budget comes out.”
