Gov. Tom Corbett’s proposed 2013-14 budget is expected to provide Pennsylvania school districts with more than $9.83 billion in taxpayer assistance.
For the Seneca Valley School District, this translates to a $992,000 increase for the 2013-14 school year, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Net pension savings Seneca Valley are proposed at $553,284.
In comparison, the North Allegheny School District is projected to receive a nearly $1.5-million increase while North Hills would receive a $760,503 increase.
In January, Seneca Valley released a proposed preliminary budget with a $2.8 million shortfall, but officials warn the numbers could change quite few times before the district is required to adopt a final budget in June.
Until the governor's budget is finalized, district business manager Lynn Burtner said Corbett's proposed funding amount would not be reflected in Seneca Valley's budget shows.
Below is a more detailed breakdown of the state funding numbers.
