Taxes in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District would increase by 3.2% under a proposed budget for fiscal year 2019-2020.
The school board is expected to vote on the preliminary plan during its meeting on Monday, February 11. Final adoption of the budget is scheduled for June 10. Wallingford-Swarthmore is permitted under the state’s Act 1 Index to boost taxes by 2.3%. However, the district intends to make use of a 0.9% exception for special education costs that would clear the way for the higher rate.
For a home assessed at the district average of $179,000, with a current annual school tax bill of $8,100, the change will result in an additional $260 in taxes.
