These graphs were really helpful. I never even thought about the fact that the cost of the merged district and the current districts was the same (63m I think you said)...and the only real difference is the fact we will get a lot of incentive aid.

Even more amazing is that we can offer all those courses and sports and other programming at the same cost if we merge, but otherwise our kids would be without these great opportunities !

Thanks for putting this is some perspective.

So then the school taxes should drop to almost zero then.
expenses: 64 mil
Incentives: 59 mil
revenues : 41 mil
$ on hand : 100 mil
- 64 mil
---------
36 mil surplus
Somethings not right somewhere, what am I missing?

No, I think the part you are missing is that the %59 million is being dispersed over 14 years, approximately $6 million each year for the first 5 then a slightly smaller amount each year after that through year 14.

Again, the information is fully contained in the study itself and fairly easy to find ! See page 43 at http://www.ilioncsd.org/District/MergerStudy/...

It shows how the $59 million is dispersed over time.

The savings is a one time shot. Then taxes will go through the roof. How do the address three different greedy teacher unions which will want perks, high pay and fully paid benefits. How will they resolve that? Merger on paper looks good but it will be a failure. Oppenheimer Ephrata can't even pass a budget, great merger work. Mergers are failures make teachers pay for their bennies like the rest of us and see how much money is saved.
its a MERGER not a MERGE

you sh*thead learn the f**king English language! and you purport to be an advocate of education? and with every one of your SPAM SPAM SPAM posts reposted across multiple forums you misuse a basic word "merge" as a noun when EVERY F**KING BODY ELSE KNOWS IT'S A GODDAM VERB!

You want a comparison graphic? Look at a picture of Dale Miller, then look at a picture of a retard sucking his thumb and yanking his tool.

OH! How about that! They look exactly the same!

Enemy of the Merge- Know the whole story.
Oppenheim-Euphratah just went through a merger
proposal with St. Johnsville; O-E voted the
merger down and "now" they can't pass a budget.
O-E became a merged district so many years ago
no one even remembers when they merged. P.S.
It will easy to "address three different greedy
teacher unions" if the merger is approved because
then there will be only one teacher union.

Ole Timer - the thing that makes sense when you look at it is that the expenses and the revenues will not basically change...$63 million in costs to the three districts either way,$41 million in basic state aid regardless...

The real difference is the incentive aid. That ONLY is available if we merge.$59 million dispersed over 14 years.

Taxes should remain stable, and there is a post talking about the use of the incentive aid on our blog if you are interested - http://friendsofthemerge.blogspot.com/2012/05...

People can rant and rave against the merger, but the facts will speak loud and clear to people.
its a done deal

One union but still greedy.
