Spring-Ford Area SD Passes Their Budget

The Spring-Ford Area School District passed their $125.5 million dollar 2010-2011 budget, but not without some pain.  Taxes in the district will increase 2% and 5 employees have lost their jobs.  The budget was approved 7-1 by the Board of Education.

This scenario is certainly not as bad as some places I have reported on, however, even a growing and fairly well-off district like Spring-Ford is having to make tough financial decisions.

The Spring-Ford Area School District has over 7500 students, 12 schools and employs over 1,000 people.  The district is the second largest in Montgomery County after North Penn (Lansdale).
