CLEVELAND -- At times, it wasn't even clear a school reform plan would have enough support, but today it passed the Ohio House and Ohio Senate.
"We can now move on to putting a levy on the ballot in November. The campaign starts now, " says Mayor Frank Jackson.
The district is facing a $65 million deficit next year. This new law impacts only Cleveland and will change teacher tenure, layoffs and accountability for Cleveland public schools and charter schools.
Governor John Kasich is expected to sign it into law in Cleveland.
