(UPDATE MAY 3: Millage is approved by voters.)
The Washtenaw Intermediate School District seeks renewal of a special education millage on Tuesday, May 3. The renewal is for seven years and would run from 2011-17. The millage renewal would generate $14 million countywide, of which $5.8 million would come to the Ann Arbor Public Schools.
The WISD seeks a renewal of .9850 of a mill for seven years to support special education services. Of the $14 million that would be raised, $5.8 would come to Ann Arbor. A defeat would cause General Fund dollars to be used for these mandated services.
Ann Arbor Public Schools Superintendent Todd Roberts offers an update about school funding and invites the public to participate in upcoming budget discussions.
Washtenaw County voters will consider a regional property tax for the county’s 10 public school districts Tuesday, Nov. 3. The ballot issue asks for two mills for five years. If approved by voters, it would be effective for budget years from 2009-13 and would raise an estimated $30 million, including $11.2 million for The Ann Arbor Public Schools.
