Another Tax Hike for the East Penn School District, Is it really ‘for the children’?

Share

Increased Taxes

The vote for the proposed 2015-2016 budget with a 3.8% tax hike was 8-1. Lynn Donches was the only vote opposed to the budget. Ms. Donches brought up the fact that 65% of the budget is for faculty and staff salaries and benefits. Industry averages 40%. How often do we hear the refrain that “it’s for the children”? To reduce the tax hike 10% cuts were made in school building budgets and to the central office, there will be less music for the music departments, less equipment for physics classes at the High School, author visits will be cut back, repairs put off, and book purchases cut as salaries and benefits grow.

It has been stated that we

East Penn School District Treasurer befuddled?

Share

At the EPSB meeting held on 5/11/2015 there was a personal appeal made to the East Penn School Board (EPSB) that provided some insight into how the EPSD may be miscalculating their floating rate interest on the EPSD debt service. Since the EPSB just voted 8 – 1 to increase school taxes by 3.78% for next year, with Ms. Lynn Donches being the only opposed, one hopes that the EPSB treasurer, Ms. Surdoval, will check into this and report back to the school board if this is indeed true. I think most taxpayers would appreciate the Treasurer taking a serious look into this possibility, it sure would be nice to lower the tax increase.

Ms. Donches is also the only board member who recommended that

EPIC Flop on guns in school for candidates present at EPIC debate

Share

Yet another case of EPSD candidates misrepresenting the public.

During the EPIC sponsored EPSD candidates show, a question was asked on guns in the school.

It is important to note that only three of the seven candidates were present, Ken Bacher, Paul Champagne and Rich Mathesz and on most of the questions asked they spoke as one with nary a difference between them.

Three other candidates gave notice of scheduling conflicts, however all gave prepared statements that were read.

One, Reverend Wally Vinovskis, never showed up, never gave notice he wouldn’t show up and had no statements to inform the public of his views or positions. One can understand as he probably wanted to avoid questions on the recent teachers union contract as

EPIC/East Penn School Board Candidates agree, Porn has Educational Value, especially for 13 yr olds

Share

Monday night’s EPIC sponsored East Penn School Board candidates night shed some enlightening insight into the thought process of three of the candidates vying for the position of East Penn School Board (EPSB) Director.

Only three of the seven candidates running attended this EPIC (East Penn Invested Citizens) sponsored show; they were, Ken Bacher, Paul Champagne and Richard Mathesz. Many in the public mentioned they did not attend this event due to suspicions that EPIC is just a front group for the East Penn Teacher’s Union and the event would be heavily geared towards painting their approved candidates in a favorable light.

Three candidates had notified event planners of scheduling conflicts; Chris Donatelli, Carol Allen, and Charles Ballard. They were not present, however they sent

EPSD Superintendent Schilder hypocritically snaps out at board member

Share

An angry unprofessional outburst by the Superintendent to sitting board member, Ms. Donches, shocked the audience present at Monday night’s school board meeting.

The outburst occurred after a board member called issue to appointing Debra Surdoval as treasurer to the EPSD for 2015-16 school year. This is a yearly appointment and Ms. Surdoval is currently the acting Treasurer.

You may remember that Ms. Surdoval appeared to be potentially involved in the Illegal burying of hazardous waste at the Wescosville elementary school. She is the present EPSD business manager and as such has responsibility of the finances of the district. It was discovered through a “Right to Know” request that Ms. Surdoval along with the former facilities manager

Let the BS begin; the EPSD 2016 budget primer

Share

The April 27th East Penn school board meeting started off with a bang. The fireworks began when a citizen went to the podium and gave a blistering account of several actions taken by the administration, one that appears blatantly illegal. It was also pointed out how the administration had not spent money budgeted for student safety, but still found the funds for pay raises for administrators.

Board member, Ms. Donches later followed by Ziad Munson asked the administration to explain their line item cuts after it was announced by Superintendent Schilder that he had instructed each Principal to cut their budgets by 10%. It seems the budget can be cut when it comes to education spending on students and

Campaign Night or Watching Cartoons at Home, Which was Best?

Share

By Janice Bowman,

Editor’s note, Ms. Bowman has been following Common Core for years and has researched it for years.

Tonight, I attended the League of Women Voters Campaign Night for the East Penn School District candidates and found just what I thought I would. Ken Bacher, Paul Champagne, and Rich Manthesz restated the talking points as we all know them. The questions could have been canned and answered for any school board campaign night!

I learned that it is as biased as I had called out on my question card. Since this question will never see the light of day with who we have covering our questions for the candidates, let me share it with all of you now in hopes you the student,
