The residents of the Iroquois School District have been asked to pay more for needed special education services as the state and federal governments continue to cut funding for services they mandate. A new report released on October 9th listed Iroquois School District as one of the hardest hit school districts in Pennsylvania.

The district’s special education expenses rose 50 percent from 2008 to 2016, according to the new report, and the district picked up nearly all of that increase. In 2008, Iroquois taxpayers covered 31 percent of the district’s special education costs. By 2016, that number was up to 65 percent.
