School tax hike expected for Seneca residents

JACKSON TWP — The Seneca Valley School Board apparently will raise property taxes for next year.
On Monday night, the board approved a proposed 2013-14 budget totaling more than $101 million with a 2.75-mill property tax rate increase.
The board will vote next month on a final version of the budget.
In the proposed budget, the district is expected to save $227,000 by not replacing three teachers who are retiring this school year. The district also could save nearly $197,000 by replacing 14 other retiring teachers with younger teachers who can be hired at a lower salary.
In addition, the board plans to furlough 1 positions on the secondary campus, while two secondary teachers affected by cuts in the science and English departments will move elsewhere in the district.
The total the district stands to save is nearly $756,000 in personnel moves between a mix of retirements, furloughs and cuts.
