- THE NUMBERS BEHIND THE GOV'S BUDGET SPEECH
- 2015-16 GOVERNOR'S BUDGET GENERAL FUND STATE APPROPRIATIONS
Local school district leaders will discuss how state funding issues are impacting our children’s educational opportunities, our local taxes, and our communities. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn how you can support fair and adequate state funding for public schools in northwestern PA.
State Rep. Seth Grove (R-Dover Township) will join the next monthly Twitter chat with Pennsylvania's major education leadership organizations on Tuesday, April 28 at 8 p.m. Topics will include, but not be limited to, PlanCon, Property Tax, Governor Wolf's budget proposal and of course the need for a fair, predictable basic education funding formula. Use hashtag #FairFundingPA to participate and follow the conversation.
Challenging situations are getting worse in schools statewide according to an update to the annual Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators (PASA) and Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials (PASBO) budget survey. School districts overwhelmingly implemented last spring's projected budget cuts, staff reductions, and tax hikes in their final spending plans for fiscal year 2014-15. Ninety-nine percent of respondents project more of the same or worsening fiscal conditions in 2015-16.
