« Back school public finance overview

Taft attorneys have significant experience negotiating revenue-sharing agreements between public school districts and related entities. By helping school districts manage their revenue streams as a result of economic development activity, Taft has made a significant positive impact for our clients.

Taft’s focus is developing strong relationships with administrators and school board members to fully understand their needs and the changing landscape or developing opportunities they may be encountering. By doing so, we are able to develop effective, efficient and customized strategies and solutions for public, independent and non-traditional schools. Over the course of time, the Taft team becomes an integral part of a school’s leadership and management.

Few things are more critical to the operation of a school than a thorough understanding of school law and finance. Additionally, no two school districts are alike. We fully recognize these facts and help clients balance the needs of the school community while maintaining a strong legal footing on their behalf. An important part of the process is distilling complex issues into manageable solutions that fit within the cultural framework of a school.

Taft represents a broad spectrum of School Law clients, including public, independent and non-traditional school clients, such as local, city and exempted village school districts, educational service centers, joint vocational school districts, public-sponsored community schools, start-up community schools, independent schools and statewide educational associations. We represent our school law clients on matters involving students, parents, teachers, support staff, unions, administrators, Ohio Department of Education and taxpayers.
