At the April 15 School Board meeting the Board unanimously approved the 2019-2020 Proposed Final Budget in the amount of $102,552,712 setting the millage rate at 24.79. This represents a .47 mill increase which translates into $47 a year on a home assessed at $100,000. Of the .47 mills, the amount of the District's charter and cyber charter school obligations accounts for .37 mills or $490,000 this year. The increase in contributions to the state retirement system (PSERS) is also reflected in an increase in the millage rate.

Included in this Proposed Final Budget is an increase in the number of counselors in the elementary schools from 3.5 to 5.6 counselors. This will provide each of the seven elementary schools with a dedicated counselor, eliminates the need to share counselors, and increases substantially the student to counselor contact time.

The Final Budget will be on the agenda for approval at the May 20 School Board meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the High School room D205.
