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.
