Sequester Will Have Minimal Impact on Quaker Valley
The Quaker Valley School District does not depend heavily on federal revenue.
Pennsylvania education stands to lose more than $26 million in the sequester cuts that start today. Quaker Valley School District isn't exempt, though the affects on the district from the across-the board spending cuts appear minimal.
In the 2012-13 and 2013-14 budget, the district reports it is anticipating 5.1 percent less in federal funding, or $27,632.
Quaker Valley is predicting $177,859 in Title I funding, $51,973 for Title II, and $311,965 in IDEA funding.
According to the document released by the White House, Pennsylvania also risks budget cuts for clean air and water protection, military readiness, law enforcement and public safety funds, job search assistance for Pennsylvanians who need work, child care, public health, violence against women and nutrition for seniors, among other programs.
