THE BUDGET

The district proposes a budget of $187,403,135 for 2017-18, a 1.82 percent increase from the current $184,051,579. The tax levy would rise by 1.16 percent, from $120,823,886 to $122,226,866.

This increase is equal to what is allowed under the district’s tax cap, so a simple majority will be required to approve the budget.

Estimated taxes paid on an average single-family house with $50,000 assessed value would increase 1.16 percent, from $8,956 to $9,060.

The teachers contract is currently under negotiation. Teachers currently are working under a contract that expires June 30 and which allowed for no salary increase other than the annual step increase in the 2016-17 school year.
