At its May 9 business meeting, the Derry Township School District Board of School Directors voted to advertise a proposed $59.8 million budget. If adopted in final form in June, school property taxes would stay frozen at the current rate for the 2016-17 school year. The current millage rate is 18.1019 mills, one of the lowest in Dauphin County. A property with an assessed value of $150,000 (the township average) will be taxed at $2,806. Assessed value is the taxable worth of a home, and is usually much lower than the market value, which is the projected re-sale price of a property.
The Derry Township School District Board of School Directors is seeking input on a draft policy intended to outline maintenance of appropriate professional adult/student relationships. The draft policy (DTSD Board Policy 824) is based on a model policy recommended by the Pennsylvania School Boards Association. DTSD intends to develop a policy that provides a safety net for students and staff while still allowing for healthy student/staff interaction.
