What will the Ad Valorem funding be used for?
If our taxpayers approve the plan, our local school tax millage will go from 12 mills to 18 mills. This will cost the taxpayer with an average home in our community ($75,000 market value), an estimated $3.75 per month increase…less than a dollar a week. The proposed 6 mill increase will generate approximately $1.4 million annually in additional revenue. The categories in which the additional revenue would be spent include but are not limited to: Curriculum Resources, The Arts, Athletics, and Extra-Curricular Activities for both elementary and secondary students. The funding would also go toward facilities, technology and current debt.
Please note that in most funding categories, the money would be dispersed by student enrollment to ensure equity of spending within the county. Click here for example draft.
