You’ll find a variety of information to support your family and scholars as we navigate the school year.


Here you’ll find a variety of helpful links to assist your student(s) success throughout the school year.

As educators and parents, we are aware of the challenges that are presented at the start of a new school year and we wanted to ensure that we provided our community members with a place to access information that will help ease the transition.

Homestead/Farmstead Exclusion Program

What is the Homestead Exclusion Program?

On April 13, 2009, the Governor implemented the Homestead and Farmstead Exclusions (Act 1), which allows school districts the ability to reduce their taxes based on revenue received from the state.

In order to be eligible for this program, the homeowner must reside in a dwelling primarily used as their permanent home. In general, it is the address where you live, where you have registered to vote and have registered your driver’s license.
