Act 1 Referendum
Pursuant to Act 1, the Pennsylvania Department of Education publishes an index % applicable to the School District. The Ambridge Area School District’s real estate tax increase for the 2016/2017 fiscal year is limited to the index of 3.3%. As a result of special circumstances covered by an Act 1 referendum exception, a tax rate % increase above 3.3% might be required to balance the Ambridge Area School District’s budget for the 2016/2017 fiscal year. The Ambridge Area School District intends to seek approval from the Pennsylvania Department of Education as required by Act 1 for an exception allowing an increase of the real estate tax as reflected in the Ambridge Area School District’s Preliminary Budget.
A copy of the proposed preliminary budget will be available for public inspection by December 30, 2015 in the Ambridge Area School District Business Office which is located at the Ambridge Area High School, 909 Duss Avenue, Ambridge, PA, and on the District’s website at www.ambridge.k12.pa.us. Final adoption of the preliminary budget will be taken at the scheduled voting meeting of the Board of School Directors to be held on January 20, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. in the High School auditorium.

Article from the Beaver County times 12/3/15 - Written by Scott Tady: http://www.timesonline.com/entertainment/local_entertainment/the-nutcracker-ready-to-delight-in-ambridge-midland-and-pittsburgh/article_b058b46c-91f3-11e5-aee6-8b065f3bffe1.html
Written almost 200 years ago, the original story was a scary fairy-tale intended only for adults.
A few storyline tweaks turned "The Nutcracker" into a family favorite and cherished holiday tradition.
Two local "Nutcracker" productions open this weekend -- at Ambridge Area High School and the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh -- with another "Nutcracker" stepping forward later this month at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center in Midland.
Each show uniquely presents the dreamlike, coming-of-age tale, complete with Mouse King, Sugar Plum Fairy and toy soldiers, told with whimsy, beauty and rousing choreography.
