- 2015-16 GOVERNOR'S BUDGET GENERAL FUND STATE APPROPRIATIONS
EasyProcure is pleased to announce that royalties from the program have topped $1 million as the program year came to a close as of May 31, 2015. These record-high royalties will translate into increased rebate dollars for participating school districts throughout Pennsylvania which will be distributed during July.
The Basic Education Funding Commission voted unanimously this morning to approve its recommendations for a new basic education funding formula. The proposed formula starts by counting students, includes weights for students living in poverty, English Language Learners and charter school students, and makes adjustments for small, rural school districts, local wealth and local tax effort. The proposed formula will now go to the General Assembly for further consideration.
PASBO believes the recommendations of the Basic Education Funding Commission for a new basic education funding will serve to begin to remedy the inequity that currently exists across the commonwealth. By counting students and providing weights for certain categories of students, such as students living in poverty and students who are English Language Learners, the proposed basic education funding formula will direct additional dollars to those school districts that have the greatest need for additional resources.
