SCRANTON, Pa. -- School directors in the Scranton School District approved a proposed budget Wednesday night which includes raising taxes.
The new plan would raise school property taxes by 3.4 percent for 2020.
That would be another $45 a year for the average property owner.
The increase was approved with a unanimous vote.
It won't solve all the district's money problems though.
The Scranton school district would still have a nearly $3 million budget deficit.
