Superintendent Clifford Rogers: Good News in Budget Update

Report reviews status of general budget adjustments.

Superintendent Dr. Clifford Rogers announced at Monday's Perkiomen Valley School Board meeting that have saved the district about $26,000 more than originally projected (See PDF).

Some items, such as the elimination of the seventh grade Terra Nova and the net reduction of the second assistant to the superintendent position, saved more -- respectively, $11,033 and $21,500.

Extra revenue generated by the activity fee is currently more than $25,000 less than expected. However, as the school year continues and students join more activities, the funds should increase.

What a joke!!! $26,000 savings? What is the annual budget? What percentage of the total budget is $26,000? I bet this is a fraction of one percent,,,,a drop in the bucket. So the real question is,,,what is the percentage increase in taxes for next year? We have had double-digit increases every year for how many years now?

Hi, GK; thank you for commenting. If you re-read the lead paragraph, you'll notice the more than $26,000 is in addition to the projected savings. It is not the total.
