We are proud to be responsible stewards of our community resources. Learn about our district budget priorities, facilities investments, real estate taxes and sponsorship opportunities.
In the spring of 2019, the School District of Lancaster established a blueprint for our district's growth in four strategic focus areas: Teaching & Learning, Student-Centered Climate & Culture, Community Engagement and Operational Effectiveness.
The School District of Lancaster's annual budget is more than $230 million, the vast majority of which supports instructional programs. Learn more about our annual budget process and how we are investing in the academic, social and emotional growth of our students.
We rely on local real estate taxes for $90 million, or 40 percent of our budget, to fund our schools. Find out information on our tax collection partner, how to save on your property taxes and which non-profits and government agencies are helping us grow through payments in lieu of taxes.
The School District of Lancaster partners with Market Street Sports group to raise alternative revenues through a corporate sponsorship program. See our current corporate partners and find out how your business can help us grow this vital program.
