STATEHOUSE - 

State Senator Kevin Bacon (R–Minerva Park) today announced the Ohio Controlling Board’s release of state funds to aid in the construction of a new high school for the Groveport Madison Local School District.  The funds were requested by the Ohio School Facilities Commission as part of their Classroom Facilities Assistance Program.
 
“An investment in education is an investment in our state’s and our country’s future,” said Bacon. “Groveport Madison School District has worked tirelessly over the years to provide their students with a great education. I have no doubt that this new school will prove very beneficial to the community.”
 
The construction of the new school is funded with $28 million from the state as well as a $25 million contribution from the local community, which was approved in May. In recent years, Groveport Madison Schools have been recognized for their responsible use of state funds. In 2013, they received the Auditor of State Award for Distinction which is given to school districts that display accountability to taxpayers in their record keeping.
