The Board of Education adopted the Fiscal Year 2020 budget on Monday, June 24, 2019.

The budget contains the state allocated $3,000 teacher pay raise, as well as market sensitive raises for transportation staff and a 4% raise for all classified employees. Additionally, the budget contains $1M in literacy initiatives and will provide classroom educators with a $100 supply card. The budget also increases hours of service for school nurses to a full eight hour day.

The Board of Education set the FY20 property tax rate at 17.55 mills, the lowest rate in nearly a decade. The previous millage rate was 18.20. This is the single largest decrease in the school's millage rate since 2007.
