The Department of Education has granted exceptions to 164 school districts allowing them to raise property taxes more than the 2.1 percent index for the 2014-2015 school year.

With the exemptions, 81 districts will be able to meet their preliminary budgets without further taxing, according to the Department of Education. Under Act 1, the other 83 have a choice of cutting back the preliminary budget they submitted to the department or asking voters on the May primary ballot for permission to further increase property taxes.
