Shiocton School District Referendum Informational Meetings Planned 1/14, 1/28, 2/5 and 2/11

Shiocton School Mill Rate to Decrease

 Referendum Informational Meetings Planned

Shiocton School District tax payers could realize a savings of close to $250 on each $100,000 of property value next year.  The mill rate is projected to be approximately $10.23 per $1,000 of property value, a decrease of $2.57 from this year’s mill rate.

Both referendums currently being supported by the community will expire this spring.  The debt service referendum will be paid off in April.   The current, non-recurring referendum approved by voters in 2010 will expire in June.  Thus, these dollars will no longer be available to support the educational program at Shiocton schools. 

The referendum language approved on December 1 by the Board of Education would both lower the mill rate and generate operational funds.  If approved by voters, this non-recurring referendum would run for three years.

Community members are invited to attend one or more of the scheduled informational meetings:
