Board Lays Out Sequestration Impact PDF Print E-mail

 The Franklin Special School District Board of Education passed a resolution at its November 12, 2012, meeting urging Congress and the Administration to amend the Budget Control Act of 2011 to mitigate drastic cuts to education. It was noted in the resolution, which was unanimously supported by all six FSSD Board Members, that federal "education programs face more than an eight percent budget cut next year unless Congress intervenes." It goes on to say the "across-the-board cuts to federal education programs" that benefit the FSSD would result in a 8.2 percent loss of federal funding, which means $126,000 fewer dollars for the FSSD.
