Counties and school districts continue to wait on funding promised by the state despite the passage of last year’s budget and the looming deadline for this year’s budget negotiations to begin.

PlanCon funding is still up in the air for the 2015-16 school year, according to an Educational Update issued by the Pennsylvania Association of School Administrators (PASA) last week.

“There continue to be behind-the-scenes discussions on PlanCon to try to ensure that districts owed 2015-16 reimbursement will get those payments as soon as possible, although, at this point, ‘as soon as possible’ will be some time in the next fiscal year.”
