According to the agenda, Superintendent Tom Henderson is expected to recommend the board pass “a resolution declaring it necessary to levy an additional 6.9-mil tax levy for the purposes of providing funds for current operating expenses and for general permanent improvements.”

The district also would be asking the county auditor’s office to certify the total current tax valuation of the school district and the dollar amount of revenue that would be generated by the additional levy.

The school board would still have to approve placing the levy on the ballot before the district would be able to go to voters.

Monday’s board meeting is in the School of Possibilities Meeting Room at 105 Virginia Ave.
