Maintaining a stable tax rate is a priority for the Board of Education. In April 2016, the board approved a 95-cent tax increase to fund expenditures not covered by the 1.11% increase in state supplemental aid. The district would have needed a 3% increase in state supplemental aid to meet its expenses.
