CALL TO ACTION
Governor Wolf’s proposed budget would fully implement the Fair Funding Formula and provide additional support so that no district ends up worse off. This would mean nearly $176 million more in state Basic Education Funding support, and over $11 million more in state Special Education Funding, for Lehigh Valley school districts – all without raising any additional state taxes. It’s incredible to think about what this would mean for our districts’ academic and extracurricular programming and supportive services for students, not to mention the community and economic development boost this would mean for our municipalities, and the long-awaited relief this could bring for local taxpayers.
Please sign our petition on our homepage and help us tell our state senators to put some of the Commonwealth’s $3 billion budget surplus to work for public schools and provide needed resources for students and needed relief for local taxpayers.
