East Penn/Emmaus HS Superintendent Schilder

 

The issue of School Real Estate Property Tax Relief has been a hot issue for years and has been getting hotter! Many citizens have been organizing with taxpayer groups across the Commonwealth to pressure State politicians to do something meaningful. Act 76 is one issue that has reached the boiling point. Act 76 would have increased the State Income Tax slightly and the Sales Tax would have seen slight increase in exchange for the ELIMINATION OF SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES!

Groups opposed to this are the Teacher’s Unions, School Administrators, and the Chamber of Commerce.

If Act 76 had passed, schools could still tax property to pay off debt. That is why school

New School Director questions PA Youth Survey

Share

 

Folks:

I am a newly elected conservative School Board Director in Boyertown.

Here in Boyertown, we had “raised a lot of dust” at a recent board meeting regarding the PA Youth Survey. The Reading Eagle also had an article from the discussion we had on the PA Youth Survey or “PAYS”. Here is the link for the article: http://www.readingeagle.com/news/article/boyertown-school-board-concerned-about-state-survey

One order of business that our community would like to see changed is our use of the PA Youth Survey. This survey gathers information that many see as totally impertinent to educating our children.

Some sample questions from the Pa Youth Survey are:

“how often do you attend religious services or activities?”,

“People in my family often insult or

Discussion with Lynn Donches, former East Penn School Board Director

Share

Lynn Donches served on the East Penn School Board from December 0f 2011 through November 2015. The Commentator requested that she share her perspective on her experience.

Lynn stated that her goals upon entering office were to promote transparency, accountability, fiscal responsibility while maintaining a high standard of education for the students, and to encourage more public participation.

Lynn initiated more discussions and more questions being asked with positive results. An example is a reduction in bond management fees stemming from her question asking if it was possible to reduce the fees (12/8/14 minutes). As a result, the fees were reduced by 15% (2/23/15 minutes), which in turn saved thousands of dollars. We thank you Lynn for asking that important question,

Thank You Lynn Donches

LVC staff

 

Monday, November 9, 2015 will be the last East Penn School Board meeting for Board Directors Lynn Donches, Samuel Rhoades, and Wally Vinovskis. We thank all for their service, but it is our opinion that special thanks goes to Lynn Donches.

Ms. Donches ran on a platform with a promise to the taxpayers for transparency and fiscal responsibility to provide a well-rounded education for the students. She upheld those promises through some very challenging meetings where she was chastised for her requests for more information on the bill list and various other requests for additional information so she could make an informed vote. None of the other Board members deemed her requests for information necessary. We commend Ms. Donches’ repeated efforts

EAST PENN SCHOOL BOARD SET TO SAY GOOD BYE TO THREE MEMBERS

Share

By LVC Staff

 

The East Penn School District’s meeting on Monday, November 9th will be the last meeting for three current board members. Sam Rhodes, Wally Vinovskis and Lynn Donches will be leaving their school board positions as of December 1st with November 9th the last scheduled meeting.

Wally Vinovskis will be leaving due to his election defeat on Tuesday, November 3rd. Rev. Vinovskis had previously lost an election bid for East Penn School Board in 2011. He was ultimately appointed to fill out the term of resigned School Director Julian Stolz in 2014. While Vinovskis conducted himself as a gentleman, his unquestioned support for the School Administrations’s policy decisions may have cost him with the voters.

Sam (Sandy) Rhodes did not choose

Jane Fretz Strikes Again

Share

We find it ironic that once again former East Penn School Director Jane Fretz promotes her Teacher’s Union slate of School Board candidates as being pro-education and the election opponents as anti-education. She has done this in many East Penn School Board Elections since 1990.

The latest example of Jane Fretz political propaganda appeared on Lehigh Valley Live on September 29th and once again in the East Penn Press. To quote the latest from Jane Fretz; “I am concerned about the East Penn School Board election this year as it pertains to the Chris Donatelli/Carol Allen slate. They are being promoted by people with a political agenda who want to undermine the success and excellence of the East Penn school system.”Jane does not
