PASBO URGES CHARTER SCHOOL FUNDING REFORM; PRIORITIZE SAVINGS TO SCHOOL DISTRICTS, TAXPAYERS

School districts across the state will usher in a new fiscal year with much-needed boosts for state basic education funding, special education funding and school safety as a result of the newly enacted state budget. The PA Association of School Business Officials (PASBO) applauds Governor Wolf and the General Assembly for their efforts in providing additional education resources in the new budget.  

However, our work is not done. PASBO remains committed to addressing charter school tuition costs when the General Assembly returns this fall. Without remedying charter school funding policy, the positive impact of the increases for education in the 2019-20 budget will be negated, and the $160 million increase in basic education funding for school districts will go directly to charter schools.
