School Lane questions charter school funding formulas
August 26, 2013
As Gov. Tom Corbett renews his push for comprehensive charter school reform, charter school operators across the state are pursuing millions of federal dollars they say they should have been paid under state law.
School Lane Charter School in Bensalem is seeking nearly $1.4 million in payments its officials argue should have been funneled to the school from the Philadelphia School District over the past five years. The amounts range from nearly $390,000 in 2010-11 to $160,000 in 2012-13, according to records provided by the school district’s Exton-based law firm, Latsha Davis & McKenna.
