Dear HTS Community:
Yesterday, Harding Township School received notification that our state aid for the 2012-2013 school year will increase to $225,137. This represents a 24% increase over our state aid from the current (2011-2012) school year. Although we are thrilled at the increased money, a long-term examination of our state aid reveals a more nuanced trend.
Approximate state aid for Harding Township School is/was as follows:
As you can see, our state aid is trending upwards over the past two years, but is still almost $135,000 less than was received as recently as the 2009-2010 school year. We are working diligently to craft a budget that is student-centered, fiscally conservative and in the best long-term interests of HTS.
