School Board Sets Tax Levy Rate
At their business meeting Thursday night, the School Board set the overall tax levy rate at $5.1059 per $100,000 of assessed valuation for property within the school district boundaries. The rate reflects an increase of 10.89 cents compared with a year ago to offset a decrease in assessed valuation of property by $3,136,212 in 2020. It is anticipated that our district's rate will continue to be the second lowest in Jackson County. A ten-year history of the school district rate is included below.

2011 - $5.5656
2012 - $5.5333
2013 - $5.5229
2014 - $5.5177
2015 - $5.4612
2016 - $5.4579
2017 - $5.4255
2018 - $5.4163
2019 - $4.9970
2020 - $5.1059
Hybrid Model for Grades 6-12 Extended Through First Quarter
At their meeting Thursday night, the School Board approved extending the hybrid model through the end of first quarter. When the hybrid model for grades 6-12 was originally adopted for the start of school it was set for only the month of September.

Although everyone prefers a full time, in person approach, the hybrid model has helped ensure that every middle school and high school student has in person days each week while allowing social distancing in these schools due to reduced class sizes.

Early childhood and elementary students are in person full time.

The Board will continue to review the hybrid approach, and its impact, and is expected to rule on a model for second quarter by early November.
