Eight York County school districts got approval from the state to raise tax rates by more than the 1.7 percent allowed by the state.
Getting approved for an exception doesn’t necessarily mean the district will take advantage of it. Districts sometimes ask for the exception as they go through the budget process, just in case they need it.
The districts that got approval are Central, Eastern, Northeastern, South Eastern, South Western, Spring Grove, West Shore and York City.
