ABCs of economic development: How a proactive approach can help your school district

Recorded session, available throughout virtual conference

School districts are often last to the table on economic development projects. As a result, boards and treasurers are cast as either pro-development (accepting abatements negotiated before the schools were involved) or anti-development (daring to challenge the pre-negotiated terms). Big Walnut Local School District has taken a different approach. This district has become actively engaged in economic development projects big and small. As a result, district officials have a strong partnership with other local government representatives, and together they have protected school district revenues while supporting growth. The panelists will discuss the secrets to Big Walnut LSD’s success and provide an overview of some of the latest trends and legal developments in economic development issues facing school districts.
