• At the April 20, 2021 board of education meeting, trustees adopted a $117.9 million spending plan that maintains all current educational offerings and instructional programs while remaining within the property tax levy cap limits.

    The budget reflects an increase of 2.99 percent and calls for an estimated tax levy increase of 1.50 percent, 1 percent below this year's maximum levy cap.
