NOTICE is hereby given that the Proposed Preliminary Budget of the Methacton School District for the 2020-21 fiscal year is available for public inspection at www.methacton.org and the School District Administration Office during normal business hours. Adoption of the Proposed Preliminary Budget will be held at a school board meeting at the High School LGI room at
7:00 PM on January 21, 2020.
Pursuant to Act 1, the PDE publishes an index % applicable to the School District. The school real estate tax increase for the next fiscal year is limited to the index % unless the proposed tax rate is approved by the voters pursuant to a referendum or the District qualifies for an Act 1 exception. As a result of special circumstances covered by Act 1 referendum exception, the tax rate % increase above the index is required to balance the District budget for the next fiscal year.
Methacton School District intends to seek approval from the PDE as required by Act 1 for exceptions allowing increase of the real estate tax as reflected in the proposed preliminary budget. Posted by ACK_01/08/2020
