Updated Tax Impact Calculator and Planned Project Resources – June 2024

Dear York Suburban Community,

I am writing today to provide an update on the status of our Budget and links to resources that I believe you will find helpful in better understanding our budget and program planning at York Suburban School District.

At the last Board of Directors’ meeting on May 28, the Board approved a General Fund Budget for the 2024-2025 school year. The Budget includes allocations for planned expenditures of $73,416,386. In addition to supporting general operating expenses and quality education programs, the budget supports our plans to renovate the high school and construct a new intermediate school for our students in grades 3-5.

Balancing the budget is complex and challenging. However, with the Board’s guidance, the administration was able to prioritize needs, effectively allocate existing resources, and continue efforts to implement strategies that improve efficiency and reduce costs. Ultimately, to balance the 2024-2025 General Fund Budget, the Board raised the millage rate from 25.6858 in 2023-2024 to 26.5848, resulting in a 3.50% tax increase for 2024-2025. The average York Suburban taxpayer’s real estate bill will go up roughly $114 next year.

The Tax Impact Calculator has been updated to help residents better understand the impact of our planned construction and renovation projects on their Real Estate Tax bill. It is important to note that for 2025-2026 and later, the estimated increases shown on the calculator are based only on the cost of district projects. Additional funding for operational costs is still to be determined.

The Tax Impact Calculator and updates as they relate to our renovation and construction projects can be found on our website at: https://www.yssd.org/renovation

Additionally, I encourage you to take a moment to read the June 2024 Renovation & Construction Update, which summarizes our district efforts to date regarding these projects. That newsletter can be viewed by clicking here.

We will continue to provide updates on our website and through District communications as the process unfolds. Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership in creating a world-class education for our students.
