The York City residents school taxes only covers about a third of the cost, the other two thirds or so comes from state and federal contributions to York City. Dallastown only gets about 10 or 15% from State/Federal
You can find the actual numbers (and teacher salaries) on www.openpagov.org
And that changes the fact that York City homeowners pay a higher millage rate and have inferior schools?

Children attending York City Schools have less academic and extracurricular opportunity than their peers in Dallastown.

With the changes in Corbett's budget the YCSD will no longer be receiving the majority of it's funding from the state so any information on openpagov.org is outdated and irrelevant to this discussion.

Isolationist policies with each minor municipality demanding to provide their own version of "public education" are part of the reason that residents are overtaxed. We need to change the way in which schools are funded in Pennsylvania and school districts need to consolidate or find new ways to cooperate to reduce costs and provide a more equitable education to all of the children in this state.

If you are only going to look at the millage rate then I guess you don't want to see the whole picture.

Both districts are spending similar amounts of money per student. I think it's in the neighborhood of $16,000.

Sorry to hear this for dallastown. I also work for a school cafeteria, work my tail off and get paid pennies. Its ridiculous how much money chartwells make off of our hard work. The food is low quality as well, chicken nuggets every other day and hamburger that im not sure where it comes from. I guess money makes the world go round and the kids nutrition is now an afterthought.
