The budget was the main topic of last night’s short school board meeting. The proposed final budget, which was adopted unanimously, has reduced the tax increase from 3.6% to 2.83%. It covers an 18% increase in charter school costs for regular education students, and a 41% increase in charter school costs for special education students. The board will formally adopt the district’s final budget next month.
Board members also unanimously supported the return to in-person board meetings in June, while also continuing to livestream meetings online for those who can’t attend in person.
