2019-2020 Budget Development

Budget timeline
At its January 17, 2019, meeting, the West Shore School District Board of Directors made the decision not to raise the rate of tax for the 2019-2020 fiscal year by more than its adjusted index of 2.6%. 
 
The Taxpayer Relief Act or Act 1 of 2006, requires school districts to limit tax increases to the level set by an inflation index unless the tax increase is approved by voters in a referendum or the school district obtains certain referendum exceptions.  However, during the month of January, Act 1 allows a board of school directors to elect to adopt a resolution indicating that it will not raise the tax rate by more than its index.  
 
Presentations to the Board
Throughout the coming months, the Board and administration will continue to review the Preliminary 2019-2020 General Fund Budget, and will work to prepare a final 2019-2020 school year budget. The following presentations were made to the Board of School Directors during that development.
