Millard Board Approves Budget, Drops Levy 2 1/2 Cents
During last night's Board of Education meeting, Board members approved the 2019-20 district budget and voted unanimously to drop the district levy by 2 1/2 cents. Board President Mike Pate stated the Board was making the fiscally responsible decision. Board members expressed appreciation to the Legislature for increased funding for education which means school districts can be less reliant on property taxes. Millard has one of the lowest levies in the metro.
4th & 5th Grade Students Receive iPads
