Allegheny Valley School District’s proposed $23 million preliminary budget for next school year includes no increase in property taxes.
The school board is expected to vote on the preliminary plan Monday. The budget will then be on review for the public before final approval in June.
At the tax rate of 20.8377 mills, the average homeowner would continue to pay about $1,530 in Springdale Township, $1,682 in Springdale Borough, $1,905 in Harmar and $2,163 in Cheswick.
District officials said expenses increased by about 1%, mostly due to pension contributions.
The board approved a 2% tax increase for this school year after residents pleaded with the district to not cut staff positions.
