Important Update

November Conferences: 

The schedule for the November conferences and professional development will be as follows:

Each building will have two night conferences the week of November 14th. Please see your respective buildings for the dates and times. On Monday November 21st all schools will have conferences from 8:00am to 12:00pm. Tuesday will be professional development from 8am to 12pm.  Your will not be required to be at your school during the afternoons of Monday (21st) and Tuesday (22nd) that week.

The administration approached AGEA about the use of flex time for the professional development on Tuesday the 22nd.  After lengthy discussions with our Rep Council we voted to not sign the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) presented by the school district. The MOU did not address our concerns based upon our experience with the flex model completed last May.

We are continuing to meet with the superintendent and his staff to address these concerns but nothing will be implemented this November.  If you have any questions please see your building reps. 


 

PA State Legislature

State House and Senate pass 2016-17 budget bills that increase school funding

 This summer, the House and Senate each passed their own versions of a 2016-17 state spending plan. Both budget bills include a $200 million increase in basic education funding and a $20 million increase for special education. Ready to Learn block grant funding remains at the current year level of $242 million.

The Senate bill includes a nearly $39 million increase for higher education.

The House Appropriations Committee released details about the distribution of Basic Education, Special Education, and Ready to Learn block grant funding to school districts, based on the new school funding formula signed into law by Gov. Wolf this year.
