After having its temporarybudget approved by the state De-partment of Education, theLenape Regional High School Dis-trict Board of Education sharedits final edition at last weeks pub-lic hearing.Marlton residents will see a
small increase in their regionalschool tax bill for the 2016-17 year.The tax levy will increase by
1.50 cents, resulting in an in-crease in regional school taxes of$36.73 on a home assessed at thetownship average of $269,900.The total budget is $156.6 mil-
lion, an increase of $2.6 millionfrom last year. Most of the budget
is funded with taxpayer money,with $116.1 million expected tocome from taxpayers in the dis-trict's eight sending municipali-ties.Board member David Stow em-
phasized the lack of state aidcoming in to help take the burdenoff the taxpayers.Our state aid should not be
lower than it was in 2009, hesaid.Over the past 20 years, state
support of the LRHSD has de-creased from nearly 40 percent ofthe budget in 1994-95 to just 19.7percent of the 2016-2017 budget.Were grateful for the small in-
crease in state funding for our

ay back in 2010, Gov.Christie won a political bat-tle, enacting a 2 percent cap
on municipal tax levies. The law required towns to limit
their municipal budget increases to amaximum of 2 percent, down from 4percent, lest they be subject to publicvote.As is the norm, legislators argued
over whether the law would have anyreal effect on property taxes, orwhether it was just another way of an-gling and passing blame onto predeces-sors.State data released recently would
say that Christies property tax reformis indeed working.While the average residential prop-
erty tax bill rose to a record high of$8,353 last year, it increased only 1.7percent, when you factor out the twotroubling property value communitiesof Atlantic City and Paterson. The states Community Affairs De-
partment said the average homeownerpaid $468 more in property taxes lastyear.Were not ready to jump headfirst
into the Kool-Aid just yet, but we alsobelieve that at least a small part of theleveling off in tax increases is becauseof the property tax cap. Residents of the Garden State still
pay the highest average real-estatelevies. Christies property-tax reform was
never going to fix that problem in thisshort of a time frame, but its a goodstart thats showing progress already.What the 2 percent cap does is keep
local governments in check, with a rea-sonable limit on increases. It forces
local councils, committees, commis-sions and school boards to take a sec-ond look at expenses and cut the excesswherever possible. It forces these enti-ties to investigate shared services andshare resources.In a word, it forces accountability.No council, committee, commission
or school board wants the fate of itsbudget to rest in the hands of voters.School boards disliked the practicewhen it was a standard, and theywould all dislike it if it were to go to avote again.Is Christies 2 percent cap the be-all,
end-all of property tax reform in NewJersey? Probably not. But it is a step inthe right direction.Now, its up to our state govern-
ment the one we have now and thenext administration that will take of-fice when Christies terms ends in2018 to take the next step and fix ourstates broken property tax systemonce and for all.
in our opinion
Is Christies tax cap working?The data would say yes, at least on the surface; now its time for a next step
Your thoughtsIs Gov. Christies property tax reformworking? Or is it all just political smoke-and-mirrors? Let your voice be heardthrough a letter to the editor.

At the April 25 meeting of the EveshamTownship Council, Mayor Randy Browncalled on real-estate broker Mark McKennaof Pat McKenna Realtors to speak on therecord regarding the closure of Evans Ele-mentary School and his beliefs on the po-tential effect it could have on home valuesin town.To first get a sense of real-estate trends
throughout town, McKenna said he lookedinto the total number of homes sold in thetownship in the first quarter of 2014, 2015and 2016.
From Jan. 1 to April 20 in 2014, McKennasaid there were 125 units sold in Evesham.During that same period in 2015, McKennasaid there were 119 units sold, and duringthat period in 2016, McKenna said 154 unitswere sold.While McKenna said those figures
showed a spectacular growth over thelast two years, the numbers were alreadytelling a different story for this year whenlooking specifically at just some of theschool zones served by Evans ElementarySchool.In regard to communities and neighbor-
hoods such as Willowridge, Dominion,Cambridge Park, Heathrow, Pheasant Run,
Delancey Place, Arrowhead and GlenEayre, McKenna said 31 total transactionstook place in the first quarter of 2014, and45 transactions took place over the sameperiod in 2015.However, during that timeframe in 2016,
McKenna said there have only been seventransactions in those communities, whichhe attributed to the uncertainty surround-ing the closure of Evans School.Youre 33 percent into the year and
youre on pace to have 21 transactions inthose communities, which is more than a50 percent decrease in transactions when

district, but as expenses increase,it remains a challenge to meet theeducational needs of all of our
students within a manageablebudget, Superintendent CarolBirnbohm said.State aid increased by $67,820
this year, though this numberwon't cover even half of the costthe district will be spending tobring in the two new special edu-cation staff positions.The new special education
teacher and support staff mem-ber are required by incomingninth-grade students IndividualEducation Plans.LRHSD graduation rates are
among the highest in the state at95.5 percent for the class of 2015,with 92.5 percent of graduatescontinuing their education inmore than 286 four-year and two-year colleges and universities.The district gives students the
opportunity to get a head start ontheir college education by offer-ing the College Acceleration Pro-gram, with 1,245 students partici-pating in 2015-16 and earning col-lege credits through Rowan Col-
lege at Burlington County.Our students will earn nearly
8,500 college credits this yearalone, Birnbohm said. This pro-gram, offered at no additionalcost to the district or taxpayers,gives students a jump on continu-ing education and, equally impor-tant, helps offset college costs forstudents and their families.Other LRHSD cost-saving ini-
tiatives range from shared servic-es agreements with the sendingdistricts to per pupil administra-tive costs that are significantlylower than other regional dis-tricts. This school year, the aver-age per student administrativecost of $1,506 is $476 below thestate-mandated regional limit of$1,982 per student.The LRHSD also benefits from

McKenna says closurecould have ripple
effect in other communities
were up 22 percent in the mar-ket, McKenna said.McKenna also expressed con-
cern for those who recently pur-chased in the areas that serveEvans and who may have put 5percent or 10 percent down on ahome, only to have a school closeand drop the value of their homesby that much or more.I have some of the inventory
I have a house that Ive droppedthree times so far, $499,900,$489,900 and $479,900, and thatsone example, McKenna said.That house is down $30,000 inabout 45 days.Even when McKenna said he
had an offer on the house of
$470,000, he said prospective buy-ers eventually withdrew theiroffer because of the uncertaintyof Evans School.McKenna also said those num-
bers might not stay limited to cer-tain communities, as there couldbe a ripple effect across homesales in all of Evesham.According to McKenna, in his
experience, those looking to moveto the area often compare thethree neighboring M-Towns ofMarlton, Medford and Mt. Laurel.I could see some people, and
Ive heard, leaning in other direc-tions because were kind of up inarms, McKenna said.McKenna said an increase in
tax appeals was also another sideeffect of the school closure andpotential decrease in propertyvalues that could affect every tax-payer in town.At past council meetings, town-
ship manager Tom Czernieckihas outlined that the defense andjudgment of tax appeals are paidfor through municipal surplusfunds in the townships annualbudget.Czerniecki has repeatedly said
the more homeowners who loseproperty values and win tax ap-peals means more money every-one else in the township is re-sponsible for replacing.

with the courts.However, Brown did say the
BOE violated multiple statutesin this state and in this town andmade repeated references to theschool board not following theproper process in its decision toclose Evans.To that end, Brown also raised
questions about the validity ofthe demographer and demogra-phy report the district used whenit was considering whether toclose Evans.They voted to close a school
without doing a process throughit, without checking on facts andfigures and statistics, Brownsaid.Brown said the district used a
faulty demographer who failedto get the necessary information
from the township regarding newhomes, townhouses and apart-ments that are planned.Brown said the demography in-
formation the township had com-piled was not new information,and was already available beforethe board voted to close Evans.According to Brown, after the
board voted to close Evans, thetownship still tried to schedule ameeting with the districts de-mographer to present the town-ships information, but Brownsaid the districts demographertold township officials he couldnot meet with them.When we file, and everybody
sees what should have happened,as I stated that night (the nightthe BOE voted to close Evans)they werent ready in an hour,they werent ready in a week,they werent ready in a month tomake that decision, Brown said.Councilmember Steve Zeuli
noted it was regrettable the town-ship had come to its decision tosue the BOE, but he said thetownship felt there were errorsin the process when the boardvoted to close Evans.Zeuli said he hoped the lawsuit
would give the BOE more time toconsider its decision and the de-mography information from thetownship that board members didnot have at the time of their vote.Im not going to categorically
tell you Im against closing aschool, but what I am categorical-ly against is running through theprocess without being account-able to it and to at least being in-terested in some of the informa-tion thats probably going tochange your mind, Zeuli said.Regarding the lawsuit, Coun-
cilmember Debbie Hackman saidcouncil had met with members ofthe board, but regrettably the twosides were at an impasse and socouncil decided to move forwardwith litigation.
It wasnt a rushed decision,Hackman said. We went backand forth quite a bit, and we felt itwas in the best interest of thecommunity.With the boards decision to
close Evans, Councilmember BobDiEnna said there were require-ments of that process of whichthe township had no control, withthe exception of township offi-cials being entrusted with en-forcing certain details.We would be remiss if we did-
nt take a position of making sureall the terms and conditions havebeen considered, DiEnna said.The BOE voted to close Evans
Elementary School at its March17 meeting in response to whatdistrict officials have categorizedas years of declining enrollment.Evesham Township School Dis-
trict Superintendent John Scavel-li Jr. has repeatedly outlined thatwhile district enrollment peakedat 5,436 students in the 2002-2003school year, the number of stu-dents in the district has fallen byabout 1,000 students to 4,440 stu-dents in this current school year.In the past, Scavelli has said
district demography studies pre-dict a continuation of that trend,with the district left with 4,080students in the 2020-2021 schoolyear.Scavelli has also said closing
Evans would save the districtabout $1.4 million and would helpthe district avoid larger classsizes and cuts to staff that wouldotherwise become necessary inthe coming years. Scavelli said the district was
aware council passed a resolutionto authorize a lawsuit against theboard, but the district had not re-ceived the complaint at the timeof this articles publication.We are saddened that the
township government would takeaction that requires spending mu-nicipal and school resourceswhich would be better used forour students, residents and tax-payers, Scavelli said.When Brown was asked if the
township had a specific filingdate in mind for the lawsuit, hisonly response was well see.
