Tax Hike in North Penn School District

Just one North Penn School Board member voted to reject the budget, but 8 other Board members were unified on approving the 252 million dollar operating budget for next year.

The budget includes a tax increase of 1.99 percent, which comes out to about 71 dollars per year for the average homeowner. The budget also includes 3.4 million dollars in new revenue. One of the top expenditures in the budget is for the purchase of Chromebook laptop computers for students.
