2022-23 Operating Budget Preparation

  • NOTICE is given that the Proposed Preliminary Budget for the General Fund of Central Bucks School District for the 2022-2023 fiscal year will be available for public inspection at the school district offices, 20 Welden Drive, Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and will be presented for adoption as a Preliminary Budget Proposal at a school board meeting to be held in the Board Room of the Educational Services Center, 16 Welden Drive, Doylestown, Pennsylvania, at 7:30 p.m. on February 8, 2022. The Preliminary Budget Proposal may be amended before adoption.

    Pursuant to Act 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Education publishes an index of a percentage increase applicable to the School District. The School District real estate tax increase for the next fiscal year is limited to the index percent 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 percent 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.
