Western allocating it ' I am pleased the state is giving us additional money, Myers said. Five hundred and one school districts can get the budget passed in a timely manner and the state can-noL Board members suggested the state move its deadline in front of the school districts deadline so boards have concrete figures when passing their budgets. Its like putting the cart before the horse, said board member Eugene Fuhrman of the states trend in passing the budget after school districts have already finalized their budgets. Many districts already have sent out tax notices, which may have to be recalculated if they reduce their millage rates. Costs involved with , sending out new notices can be in the thousands, area school officials have said. South Western School District does not send tax notices out until mid-July, so Mondays decision will not create additional costs to the district But Fairfield, Conewa-go Valley and Bermudian Springs school districts, among others, already have billed taxpayers. The administration opted against using the two other options offered by the state. While more than $300,000 in requests were cut from the budget before board discussions began, Barbara Rupp, superintendent said those mostly were equipment and supply costs and could not be considered programming. As far as debt the districts debt primarily is in bonded agreements with specific payments, which makes it difficult to use the $109,253 for debt reduction. It was cleaner to reduce the local millage increase, said William Mummert, business man- Board member Rick Halter said the states school district funding increase took money away from state universities, which some South Western graduates go on to attend after graduation. Three percent was taken away from state colleges, Halter said There are 14 state schools. Thats a little disturbing. They really have not found the total money it takes to fund education in the state of Pennsylvania. Still, board member Robert Williams thanked the administration for recommending the millage decrease. Im glad were able to give something back to the taxpayers, he said. Aside from the change in the millage rate and the amount of revenue the district received the $31.2 million budget remains the same. The only thing worse than voting for a tax increase is voting for one twice in two weeks, Myers said. Everyone sees the trouble some districts are in, and Im glad were not one of them.
