Do you already
There may be a good reason why the Blue Ridge School Board tries to schedule 2 meetings each month. When there’s only one, it one can go on for hours. The meeting on June 15 didn’t set a record for length, but probably only due to a novel approach to the business agenda: do it all in one swell foop.
School districts throughout the state are required to have their budgets for the coming year in place by the first of July. But, as of the date of the Susquehanna Community School Board meeting on June 17, the state budget had still not been passed, which leaves more than a few questions unanswered, such as what the district's basic education subsidy will be. Two state budgets were under discussion as of the meeting date, with one allowing for a 4% increase in basic education subsidies and the other with no increase. Several at the board table described the state budget process as being “a mess,” but the district did pass its budget as required. The final total, $13,916,343 sets the millage for Susquehanna County at 41.31 and Wayne County's at 13.71, a slight difference from the budget originally proposed, due to a slight in crease in IDEA funding.
