Act 1 Referendum Exception Notice

Pursuant to Act 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Education publishes an index applicable to the School District.  The school district real estate tax increase for the 2017-2018 fiscal year is limited to 3.7% unless the proposed tax rate is approved by voters pursuant to a referendum or the School District qualifies for an Act 1 exception.  As a result of special circumstances, some of which may be covered by an Act 1 referendum exception, a tax rate increase of 48.22% above the 3.7% index might be required to balance the School District budget for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.  The tax to be levied is required to provide a quality education program as reflected in the 2017-2018 Preliminary General Fund Budget.

 
The School District intends to seek approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education as required by Act 1 for exceptions allowing an increase of the real estate tax as reflected in the 2017-2018 Preliminary General Fund Budget.  The Budget, as approved by the Board of School Directors during their Regular Meeting held on February 14, 2017, is available for public inspection at the Office of the Superintendent, 1275 Rostraver Street, Monessen, PA  15062.
