Did State School Board Err In Denying Village's Petition for Transfer to Neighboring School District?
Brian P. Spitznagel et al. v. State Board of Education et al., Case no. 2009-0015
10th District Court of Appeals (Franklin County)
ISSUE: In cases involving petitions for the transfer of property from one public school district to another, did the Supreme Court of Ohio's 2008 decision in Bartchy v. State Board of Education overrule prior decisions of the 10th District Court of Appeals holding that a loss of tax revenue by the school district that would surrender property, without more, is not a sufficient basis for the state board of education to deny a requested transfer?
