2015-2016 Budget Presentation
Business Director Janice Klein presented an overview of the 2015-16 Budget to the School Board at the March 9 Discussion Meeting.  Even though it is still early in the budget development process, Ms. Klein outlined the major issues facing the District in the coming year. As is the case with most school districts, the rising cost of PSERS (Pennsylvania School Employees' Retirement System) and the uncertainty about  the amount of funding from the State play a significant role in budget planning.
