Below you can view the Lebanon School District preliminary budget for the fiscal year 07/01/16 – 06/30/17. This document is posted below.
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 next fiscal year is limited to the index % 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 covered by an Act 1 referendum exception, a tax rate % increase above the index might be required to balance the school district budget for the next fiscal year. The tax to be levied is required to provide a quality education program as reflected in the school district Preliminary Budget.The Lebanon School District intends to seek approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education or to the County Court as required by Act 1 for an exception allowing increase of the real estate tax as reflected in the school district Preliminary Budget. The Preliminary Budget is available for public inspection at the Lebanon School District offices, 1000 South Eighth Street, Lebanon, Pennsylvania, and on our website. Upon written request by any school district resident or taxpayer, the Lebanon School District will provide a copy of the referendum exception application.
