The Allegheny Valley School Board on Monday approved the district’s $23 million final budget for next school year without a tax increase.

The tax rate will remain the same at 20.8377 mills. The average homeowner will continue to pay about $1,530 in Springdale Township, $1,682 in Springdale Borough, $1,905 in Harmar and $2,163 in Cheswick.

The budget was approved in an 8-0 vote. Board member Shawn Whelan was absent.

District officials previously said expenses increased by about 1%, mostly due to pension contributions.

The district also approved the 2019 homestead and farmstead exclusion, which reduces property taxes for qualified properties by about $135.
