South Carolina Now (SCNow.com) - News - Bill's impact on schools uncertain
Florence School District 2 Superintendent Dr. Steve Quick, whose district is based in Pamplico, said the changes have left a feeling of uncertainty.He said there were three stable sources of revenue: the property tax, income tax and sales tax. Now, he said, they're not sure what the stable sources of revenue are."It's confusing.I think their intent was to try to help people and I understood that," Quick said."When you look at what your options are in a school district to do the things you have to do, you got to have a stable source of revenue.In the past, that has always been property taxes.""I fully understand that people want property-tax relief," he said."What they need to do is have an assess valuation for the the whole state, rather than a value of a mill for Florence County (for instance).All the revenue of this state should be in a value of a mill, and someone needs to determine that this is what is needed to educate a child, whether it's a base student cost of $5,000, and how do we get that to a school district."School districts that have fiscal autonomy are able to set the property-tax rate, but with the new law, those school districts will no longer be able to do so, Quick said.Florence 2 doesn't have fiscal autonomy, but 56 school districts, including Darlington County and Marlboro County District, have fiscal autonomy or partial fiscal autonomy.All school districts' spending will be based on the budgets set for the 2006-07 school year.A formula in the legislation will use spending from that year as a starting point, and future increases will be based on inflation."The state legislature becomes, as people always said, the super school board," Quick said."They determine the revenue, but they also issue you mandates saying you have to do these things."Quick said his district's board of trustees has looked at the impact of the new law and has concerns about the funding distribution method.But they are waiting to see the law put into play."The bottom line is, I know the flow of cash right now and school districts know that," he said.
