Act 1 Referendum

Pursuant to Act 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Education publishes an index % applicable to the School District. For the upcoming 2019-20 fiscal year, the school district real estate tax increase is limited to the index, 3.1%, unless a higher tax rate is approved by voters pursuant to a referendum or the School District qualifies for an Act 1 exception.

For the upcoming fiscal year, the School District Board of Directors is required to make a decision to stay within the index or seek exceptions, by January 31, 2019.
