The Susquehanna Valley School Board approved a budget that includes merging three elementary schools into two.

The Susquehanna Valley School Board passed a spending plan of $29.3 million with a property tax levy increase of 9.27%.

Superintendent Carol Boyce says S-V confirmed it will receive $300,000 in additional state aid which helped lower the projected tax increase.

The district will also save $878,129 by moving Cedarhurst students to Donnelly or Brookside Elementary schools.

A public hearing on the budget is scheduled for 7:00 pm on May 6 at the S-V High School Auditorium
