BAD NEWS!
Even with building and department budgets
frozen for the 4th straight year, a charter
school not opening, revenue from our solar
projects (electricity savings and SREC), energy
conservation program, facilities rentals,
preschool tuition… the proposed budget was
more than $2 million over the Tax Levy Cap
GOOD NEWS!
EHT School District receives $2,275,704
in unexpected additional state aid!
This additional state aid (only a fraction of what
the state’s funding formula should provide EHT)
means the district does not have to reduce $2
million to get to within the required 2% Tax
Levy Cap!
