Even in "wealthy districts" there are significant numbers of residents on fixed incomes or in some other financial crisis.
School districts need to be compensated by a "state wide" income tax formula. Wealthier districts can then have "user fees" and "foundations" to help with the "extra" programs they wish to have in their districts.
The burden must be shifted away from funding schools with property taxes. It is a unreasonable and unfair system.

I agree with most of your comments. However,it would be useful for you to look at how the Roslyn School Board recently voted on the budget to deprive the less fortunate members of our community the vital programs they need notwithstanding a surplus in the budget and the promise of more State aid.
