CLEVELAND - The Cleveland mayor's reform plan for Cleveland Public Schools is now in the hands of the state legislature and we should see some action Tuesday.
Committees in the Ohio House of Representatives Ohio State House and Senate will likely take up the matter Tuesday morning. If it's approved, the plan goes to the full House and Senate for a vote.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the language of the bill was just finished being re-worked late Monday night.
The schools transformation plan would eliminate seniority as an employment decision for teachers. It also calls for a longer school year and would put a tax levy before voters in November, the first in 16 years.
It also calls for an alliance to be formed, a group of people put together to set guidelines for charter schools.
The Plain Dealer says that was the sticking point in the last minute language changes in the actual bills that lawmakers will vote on.
Cleveland City Council passed a resolution in support of the plan.
Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say they are on board with the school transformation plan.
