Seneca Valley School board is set to vote on the proposed 2014-15 budget next week.

School board president Eric DiTullio said during Monday’s agenda setting meeting that most of the proposed 3.7 mill tax increase will go to cover mandated costs.

He said 2.75 mills of the tax increase will be dedicated to funding the pension costs for members of the Pennsylvania State Employee Retirement System. Another 0.75 mills, about $500,000, will cover the cost of busing pupils to the new Cardinal Wuerl High School in Cranberry Township. The district is mandated to provide bus services to private and parochial schools within its boundaries.

“We are doing it (the tax increase) because we are being forced by the state. No one is happy,” Mr. DiTullio said.

The $108 million budget has been on display since May.
