Here's how much Lancaster County school districts can raise property taxes in 2020-21


Lancaster County school districts can raise property taxes as much as 2.6% to 3.9% next year, based on limits recently released by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

For now, that is.

Every fall, the state issues its Act 1 index, which limits how much each of the commonwealth's 500 public school districts can raise property taxes.

2020-21 Act 1 Index

The Pennsylvania Department of Education each year sets limits on how much school districts can raise property taxes. The percentages, known as the Act 1 index, are calculated using percent increases in the Pennsylvania statewide average weekly worker wage and the federal employment cost index for schools.
