Does East Penn’s Fund Balance Affect the Bond Rating or Have the Taxpayers Been Lied to Again?

Share

East Penn School District (EPSD) administration and their bond agent PA Financial Management (PFM) constantly insist that the fund balance of the district is critical to the bond rating the district has, so let’s explore this relationship.

It is interesting to note that in the past when questioned about the excessive amount of uncommitted fund balance remaining at the end of every year board members, especially Mr. Charles Ballard insisted that there was no fund balance. That is, until the amount of cash in the fund balance grew so large it could no longer be denied. At that point the story from the administration and board changed, and the fund balance or the amount of uncommitted cash available in the budget was claimed

East Penn resident seeks to recover taxpayer funds spent on possible illegal acts

Share

A resident in East Penn School District has filed for a “Surcharge” audit with the Auditor of East Penn School District to recover taxpayer funds believed to have been spent on illegal actions.

According to Pennsylvania law, taxpayers may file a request to have expenditures reviewed by the appropriate Auditor, and if the expenditures are found to be inappropriate in their use, then those with fiduciary responsibility can be made to repay the taxpayers for the funds inappropriately expended.

This request stems from the illegal burial, ordered by Administrators of East Penn School District, of hazardous waste at Wescosville Elementary School property. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) it is “Unlawful to dispose of any waste at a facility or site that

The East Penn School Board Sneaks in another EARLY Teacher Contract!

Share

Did you know that the East Penn School Board voted 8-1, in August, to give the Teacher’s Union another “Early Bird Contract”? We would not be surprised that you did not know because the contract was slipped in as a last minute addendum to the agenda the night of the meeting! No, there was no public notice of this action. No it was not posted on the EPSD website, not even the day of the meeting! It seems that they once again purposely held off the public notice so the general public would not know and come asking uncomfortable questions. East Penn has been doing this for years. Do they know it is illegal? They should because they were sued five

Donation for Philadelphia charter schools ignites skirmish

By | Posted in WatchBlog

No good deed goes unpunished.

This is especially true in Philadelphia, where the offer of a $35 million gift ignited the latest skirmish in the city’s hostile education debate.

Last week, the Philadelphia School Partnership, a philanthropic fundraiser whose mission is to invest in the startup, expansion and turnaround of public and private schools, offered the School District of Philadelphia $25 million to add 15,000 new charter school seats and another $10 million to assist in the transformation of district schools.

“I don’t think it would be wise to accept it,” said Susan Gobreski, director of Education Voters of Pennsylvania,
