YET ANOTHER Financial Threat to School Funding - TAKE ACTION
As reported in Capitol Comments this afternoon (Wed., 12/7/16), a new piece of legislation is gaining traction in the legislature and may serve to reduce funds meant for the education of children. The bill would allow the state to pay tax refunds from the School Aid Fund rather than the General Fund as it is now. This legislation would cost district $273 per student! The continual grabbing of cash from the State School Aid Fund over the years has left most districts teetering financially. Another financial blow is hard imagine. Most schools have already cut programming and increased class sizes.
Please write your legislator and tell them to oppose the usage of School Aid Funds for tax refunds.
