The biggest issues facing our district is providing a quality education to our students while remaining fiscally responsible to all our stake holders. Our district is still one of the least funded schools per student in the state of Pennsylvania and our property owner are being stretched to the max with property tax obligations. We need to work hard to maintain or improve our standard for our students, staff and tax payers. Our district is also facing capital improvement projects which will far exceed the capital reserve the district currently has for these capital projects. This will not be an easy task to over come, however we continue to work hard to overcome these issues. In the passed three years I've been on the board we have added programs for our student, maintained current staffing and currently investigating passed construction issues all while moving forward with much needed capital improvement projects and most importantly not increasing taxes to our property owner.
