D.7. – Supports legislation to hold cyber and charter schools accountable to the same standards as school districts. PSBA also supports legislation that reduces or eliminates the financial burden on school districts for cyber and charter schools.
 
E.1. – Supports legislation to increase the state contribution for special education services based on actual cost incurred and students served. 
 
I.2. – Supports legislation that establishes a K-12 education funding system that is built upon the principles of equity, adequacy, efficiency, accountability and predictability; uses a statewide funding formula for school district subsidy that recognizes the number of students taught, the relative wealth of a district, the local tax effort and the actual costs of educating every student to achieve Pennsylvania’s academic standards; and requires the state to fund 100% of all budgeted subsidy payments on a timely basis.
 
I.19. – Supports legislation that abolishes the requirement for school districts to use elected property tax collectors, permits centralized collection for property taxes levied and allows regional tax collection with districts having a voice in the appointing and management of the tax collector.
