Columbia Borough School District would see the highest per-student increase in Wolf's plan

Columbia Borough School District would see the highest per-student increase in Wolf's plan: $331.
 It would receive the second highest per-student increase under the GOP plan, but less than half of what Wolf proposed: $112.
Business Manager Amy Light said Columbia didn't count on Wolf's increase in the 2015-16 district budget. School boards must pass their budgets by June 30, before state funding is solidified.
"We can't submit on what we hope. We have to submit on what we are relatively certain of," said Light. Columbia's budget included a 2 percent tax increase.
