30. I think the hitch here is that it's different school districts in different towns.
After doing a little reading, it appears that the Copley schools are primarily funded through local property taxes, while Akron's are mostly funded by the state.

Their argument is that she not only deprived the Akron schools of much needed state funds, but that she also stole from the taxpayers of Copley by sending her kids to a school and district that she hadn't paid any taxes to fund.

What they're saying, in essence, is that Copley schools are paid for by Copley taxpayers, and therefore are only open to Copley residents. By lying about living in the town, she was "stealing" services that the actual residents had paid for.

Not that I agree with the punishment, of course. Expelling the kids should have been the end of it.
