A preliminary budget released as a School Board meeting last night shows Spring-Ford Area School District’s plans for handling its $10.4 million budget gap.
Salaries, health care benefits and other expenses total more than $6 million, despite a new health care plan with higher copays. The District is fighting $4 million in assessment appeals from companies like GlaxoSmithKline, but doesn’t have much time left before a preliminary budget is due to the state.
The Pottstown Mercury details plans for cost-cutting, which will be reviewed at Feb. 14 hearing — two days before the preliminary deadline. Final budgets are due June 30.
