    Take Action! - PA State Budget Crisis

    Attention Pennsylvania Parents, Taxpayers, and Teachers – Please Read and Share!

    If passed, the Property Tax Elimination Bill (previously SB 76) will have a detrimental impact on our schools and you, as a wage earner, will more than likely pay more in taxes.  Please contact your legislators now!  The following information from the PA Association of School Business Officials provides potential implications for parents and taxpayers.  Please read the attached files for more information.

    Funding for public schools continues to be a growing concern for the residents of the state of Pennsylvania.  Please contact your representative and urge them to support funding for our schools!

    Board Update

    On March 27, 2017, the Northern Tioga School District Board of Directors heard presentations from Hunt Engineers and Robert W. Baird & Co. regarding potential renovation projects and subsequent financing.

    Over the past several months, Buildings and Grounds Committee (made up of a board member from each region), along with district administration and representatives from Hunt Engineers met numerous times to review the Building Condition Study prepared by Hunt in early 2016.  After many meetings and much discussion, the committee reviewed the study and determined the items to be included in a project.  Hunt Engineers were asked to present the potential project to the entire board and Les Bear, from Robert W. Baird & Co. was asked to present potential financing options.

    No action on the potential project or financing was taken at this time.

    Below are links to the handouts from the March 27, 2017 meeting, as well as a list of smaller projects that were previously approved for 2017/2018 to be funded through the Capital Reserve fund.
