Every school district in the region and across the Commonwealth struggles with its own set of unique financial challenges, affecting the quality of education offered to students. This discussion will provide community stakeholders with the unique opportunity to learn about the mechanisms of education funding at the state level, the effort that has been undertaken by the legislature to review the current education funding formula, and the proposals to overhaul the formula being considered this session.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
