PHS board talks tax levy, teacher evaluation tools
PRINCETON — Taxpayers in the Princeton High School district could have a slightly lower property tax rate for the 2012 year, payable in 2013.
At Monday’s meeting of the PHS board of education, Superintendent Kirk Haring said the projected Equalized Assessed Valuation (EAV) for the district shows a tentative increase of about 3 percent, though an estimated 1 percent increase is more realistic. If the district does have a 3 percent EAV increase, the tax rate could go down as much as 6 cents per $100. At a 1 percent EAV increase, a 4-cent decrease in the tax rate is more likely, Haring said.
Any time the school district can give any type of decrease in its tax rate, that’s a tremendous thing, Haring said. Especially in today’s economy, any little thing the school district can do is a good thing to help taxpayers, he said.
