Board Approves Act 1 Resolution

The board approved a resolution pursuant to Section 311(d)(1) Special Session Act of 2006 certifying Pine-Richland School Board will not raise local taxes at a rate to exceed the school district's Act 1 index of 3.4% for the 2022-2023 general fund budget as presented.

The Act 1 index is used annually to determine the maximum tax increase for each school district without approval by the Pennsylvania Department of Education or voter approval.  Additional information about the Act 1 index is located at: https://www.education.pa.gov/Policy-Funding/PropertyTax/Pages/Act1.aspx.

The purpose of this resolution is to allow the school district to continue through the general fund budget preparation process for 2022-2023.  This resolution states the school board is not planning to raise the real estate tax rate for next fiscal year beyond the approved Act 1 index for the Pine-Richland School District.  The school board may approve a tax increase up to 3.4% but not exceed this percentage.
