Fiscal Year Budget Development

The District begins its formal work on preparing the budget for the next fiscal year with the annual announcement of the Act 1 Index number by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The process begins with the presentation of a budget development calendar in September. Additional activities include the review of the prior year's financials and the development of departmental and building budgets.

Monthly presentations are made to the Board's Directors' Study Forum (DSF) and are posted here for public view. One of the topics is considering the Resolution to keep any real estate tax increase at or below the Act 1 Index number determined by the Department.

The work of the Board and Administration continues with the preparation of the budget in the prescribed form PDE-2028 for preliminary approval in January unless the Board determines not to seek exceptions.

The next few months include refining the budget's revenue and expenditure totals, leading to final adoption in May.
