INFOhio Needs Your Help! Retain Digital Content Funding in SubHB49!

In the proposed substitute budget bill,  SubHB49, the $1.1 million funding INFOhio lost two years ago has been restored.  We need to continue to work to make sure the funding in the substitute budget bill stays in place.  Without it, INFOhio cannot fund BookFlix, Storia, World Book, Science Online, Ancestry Library Edition, or any EBSCO databases.  Without these resources, schools lose key tools to positively impact the third grade reading guarantee, new state standards, college and career readiness, blended learning and other high profile initiatives. 

How does this impact my school district financially?  Use the Resource Cost Calculator below to find out.
