Good News

Click here for some good news, courtesy of the Plainfield School District web site.

The district web site is one that residents might want to bookmark, because there is a lot of good information on it. Click here for the home page.

Some of us have enjoyed Peter Carter's letters to the community since he came on board. There may be only one or two more to go and we will miss them.

The web site has agendas and minutes from school board meetings and a lot more useful day-to-day information. It actually does serve a purpose for the community. You can dig down into information for each school.

Currently Plainfield taxpayers are only asked to come up with less than $18 million in local school taxes, while the state kicked in $99,967,767.99 for the 2007-08 school year. In years to come, Plainfielders will be asked to do more, as pressure builds to change the school funding formula. In most suburban districts, property owners pay most of school costs.

Ooops! Better quit before we go from good news to not-so-good news.
