Hundreds of schools and educational ventures in Ohio have applied for grants from a new $250 million innovation fund established by Gov. John Kasich .
State Superintendent Richard Ross said the overwhelming number of applications means competition will be intense.
Final decisions are expected in mid-December. Each proposal will first receive separate fiscal sustainability and value scores and then a panel of grant advisers will vet them.
That group will recommend finalists to the seven-member Straight A Fund governing board. The board's selections must be approved by the state Controlling Board.
