Elimination of Property Tax

The school board voted on 1/23/17 unanimously on the resolution that the T/E School District opposes the legislation to eliminate school property taxes. This very same Senate Bill 76 was defeated by one vote in 2015 and will likely come to the floor again this year. The District is looking to make as many parents and community members aware of this legislation and encourages resident involvement in opposing this legislation. For details see the TESD Legislative Alert on the District website. Any questions can be directed to Dr. Wendy Towle, Ad Hoc Legislative Committee Administrative Liaison, (610) 240-1903.
