CONCORD >> Each year property owners receive a school tax bill which, for the most part, has been rising annually. The consistent need for local revenue makes no one happy – and that includes school boards.
The Garnet Valley School Board passed a “Resolution Urging the General Assembly to Adequately Invest in Public Schools and Students.” While it may not change tax increases in the short term, the statement fortifies the feelings of school boards across the commonwealth.
Board President Rosemary Fiumara introduced Tomea Sippio-Smith, K-12 policy director of Public Citizens for Children and Youth. The organization organized a recent summit at Delaware County Intermediate Unit to discuss school funding. The resolution is supported by PA Schools Work, a non-partisan coalition representing communities on education issues.
