The Tredyffrin Easttown School District Board of Directors wil hold a special meeting next Monday to determine whether or not it will need to ask the state for permission to raise taxes above the state-mandated limit.
The board must decide whether it wants to keep the option open by requesting an exception. It would not necessarily mean a higher tax increase. If the board does not request the excpetion it would not be allowed to raise taxes above the state permitted limit.
When the board last met in December the budget estimates, which change constantly, were not firm enough for board members to make a decision and so the special meeting was scheduled.
According to an announcement on the T/E School District website:
The Board of School Directors for the Tredyffrin/Easttown School District will hold a special meeting to consider and take certain actions regarding the preliminary budget for the 2013-2014 school year and such other matters that may come before the Board on Monday, January 7, 2013, 7:30 p.m. in room 200 of the Tredyffrin/Easttown Administration Building (TEAO) at 940 West Valley Road, Suite 1700 in Wayne.
