Along with voting for the three vacant seats, residents will also vote on the district’s proposed budget for the 2013-14 school year. The board approved the proposed budget in April with a tax rate increase of 2.17 percent and a levy increase of 2.15 percent.
The budget was approved at $93,992,000 for the 2013-14 school year during the board’s regular meeting on April 8. The budget-to-budget increase from last year is 1.97 percent, said Thomas Cole, assistant superintendent for business. The 2012-13 budget included a 2.42 tax rate increase, Cole said. The budget includes $1.4 million in reserve funds and a reduction of $350,000 from last year’s budget to keep the tax rate lower, Board of Education President Jackie Carbone said.
