Borough Formation and Petersburg City Schools
EDITOR’S NOTE: The following information was provided to The Pilot at the request of the publishers to provide factual information about the formation of the Petersburg Borough and its effect on funding for the Petersburg City Schools.
Approval or disapproval of a Petersburg Borough should not be based solely on the effect, positive or negative, of borough formation on the local schools. The borough decision is much, much larger in scope than this. That said, many people have asked for an explanation of school funding and the net effect of borough formation on the school district.
