COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio officials approved 37 grant applications involving nearly 200 schools and educational entities from an innovation fund established by Gov. John Kasich.

The Ohio Department of Education says grants totaling $144.6 million were recommended by the Straight A Governing Board for funding in fiscal year 2015. The Ohio Controlling Board approved the expenditures Monday.

About 662 organizations applied for the "Straight A Fund" grants from the fund created to promote innovative local ideas and programs to help modernize Ohio's education system.

The fund was created in the state budget signed last summer by Kasich. More than 150 entities received $100 million last year.
