Spring-Ford School District Losing Both Superintendent And Assistant Superintendent

Makes me wonder what’s in the water over there!  Both the superintendent and assistant superintendent have announced their plans to retire at the end of the school year, leaving Spring-Ford without an easy replacement option to fill the top job.  How often does that happen??

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).
