PASA-PASBO 2016 Report on School District Budgets
The Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators (PASA) and the Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials (PASBO) recently released findings from its annual Report on School District Budgets.
The survey found that without increased state funding to help meet mandated, necessary school costs, more schools will be forced to cut instructional and extracurricular programs, reduce classroom and other staff and increase local property taxes.
The report is available on the PASA website at www.pasa-net.org and the PASBO website at www.pasbo.org.
