Tallmadge -- Tallmadge City Schools is awaiting a $51,249 payment from the state for its share of Ohio casino tax money.
According to figures released last month by the Ohio Department of Taxation, roughly $38 million will be allocated to the more than 1,000 various educational institutions across Ohio as the state distributes its first revenues collected from taxes on casino profits.
Locally, Summit County school districts are slated to receive more than $1.62 million from the state. Allocations are based on student population and enrollment figures. Private schools are excluded from receiving any of the funds.
The state is to make the disbursements by Thursday.
