EPSD 2015/16 budget BS 101

Share

Paul Champagne

As EPSD goes about its usual business with the proposed 2015/2016 budget, we can all expect more of the same old BS. Earnshaw’s we are really working hard on this budget to keep it as low as possible and assure that we don’t effect the children’s education and there’s nothing more we can do about it. Heid ( a professor) I am not happy about this tax increase, but there’s nothing we can do. Bacher’s, I’m a smart man and I can see the reasons we can’t do anything about it. Rhodes,( he’s a Parkland teacher) doesn’t say much and just doesn’t do anything about it except vote for it. Munson,( a Lehigh professor and his wife is a teacher in

Another transparency issue? Please speak up

Share

The EPSB meeting on 6/8/2015 had its share of citizen input throughout the meeting.

Editors note: the video camera is set up right under a speaker in the ceiling and is set to sensitive pickup, the audience however does have a very hard time hearing what the board members say, especially if they do not speak directly into the microphones.

It started when a packed house got up and spoke at the podium against the “Bully” Ballard censure motion. Then when the board members seemed to refuse to use their microphones when they were talking the audience erupted in attempts to get the board to use the microphones. It happened again when the solicitor was answering Ms. Donches question, and not

Education. Comparing PA to other states.

Share

By Ron Beitler at RonBeitler.com

I’m probably nuts for writing about education cause it’s a hyper-partisan mine-field littered with special interests and an ingrained “team mentality”. As a township commissioner I have no influence on these conversations. I have no team and I’m not interested in joining one. I just want to step outside the echo chambers for a minute.

But here goes nothing. I try hard to remain agnostic. Step away from the partisanship and just look at the big picture. To that end, you can somewhat do so since in our American education system we have 49 relatively independent systems to compare. I always go back to how are we doing vs. other states as a baseline.

East Penn School District $141 million Budget Vote, Unions win-children lose

Share

Can you figure out what the most important thing on the Superintendent’s and the majority of the board member’s mind is for next year’s school budget by looking at just one page of it? Click on the page for a better look.

This year’s budget has an increase $4,367,234 over last year’s total budget, a 3.2% increase. However, the “Salary & Benefits” Category has increase of $4,467,849 over last year’s budget, a 5.1% increase. That means the entire increase in this year’s budget, plus some is being spent on “Salary & Benefits”. The entire tax increase residents of East Penn will pay this year is going to fund increases in “Salary & Benefits”. Not supplies for children, not

East Penn School Board “Lets lower the taxes”. Hold on though, don’t get too excited

Share

Hold your surprise, it seems like all the school board members suddenly want to lower your taxes. This may appear to be a strange request, especially after they just voted 8-1 to increase your school taxes by 3.78%. So what gives? Well, it turns out that the Superintendent may have found some extra money laying around. That’s right, extra money, and almost $100,000 to boot, wow! What will they do with this windfall? Well, that’s the exact question the Superintendent posed at the school board meeting on 6/8/2015. The Superintendent was looking for the boards guidance, so he asked them and they responded with gusto. A vast majority said apply it to the tax increase we just approved. The only board member that voted against

East Penn School Board member suggests openness to promote Foundation

Share

You may not be aware, but East Penn School District is trying to start a Foundation that would allow businesses to divert some of their profits to the District and in return, receive a tax write off. It turns out that the District has already had one meeting on this topic, with Superintendent Schilder saying it was attended by only 8 individuals. According to the Superintendent there is another meeting scheduled, but during his report at the school board meeting he failed to mention the date, time and place. In an effort to inform the public, School board director Ms. Donches stated that the next meeting would take place on June 16th.

In order to promote and help the District we are including the Continue reading…

East Penn Superintendent and Treasurer present flawed budget…

Share

But it still passed 8-1.

You read right, even though the school district has two policies stating the budget have at least 5% of the total budget as a reserve, that would be $7,000,000 in a $141 million dollar budget for this coming year, the administration presented a budget that was short of the required reserve funds, and 8 members of the board voted to support it anyway. Only one board member, Ms. Donches, voted against this budget.

The same board members who approved this budget, also voted to allow Superintendent Schilder to cut 10% of his principles budgets. This 10% directly funds items relating to student education and safety. Again only one board member, Ms. Donches, voted against these cuts to the
