School Budget Database - 2020-21

Just put in your county and see your school district's proposed new budget and last year's budget, plus enrollment.
Why should you care? Because school budgets are a significant part of your property tax bills. Budgets increase even when enrollments decline. The tax rates and school and municipality budgets (not your assessment) determine how much property owners pay in property taxes. The total tax levy and tax rates can be found on your school, town and county tax bills or ask your local assessor.
If you feel your taxes are too high, voice your opinion to your local elected town and school officials, vote in school and town elections and participate in your local government.
Ask questions, be sure you have the facts. And vote!
