Budget Proposal
  • The FY-2016 Preliminary Budget Proposal of
    21,781,042 for the Abington Public Schools
    represents an effort to secure the necessary
    financial resources to provide the children of
    Abington with a high quality educational program.
  • The following are important to note as the budget
    development process moves forward
  • The budget for the Abington Public Schools has
    increased a total of 6.1 since FY-2010. The
    costs of education has risen at a higher rate in
    this same five year period of time.
  • Certain built-in increases for fixed or
    mandated costs will automatically cause our
    budget to increase regardless of the economic
    times.
