This measure sought to increase local property taxes by around 5 cents per $100 of assessed value, or approximately $150 a year. The school district asked for this tax increase because of the decrease in state funding that was expected for the next school year. Although the school did not propose to take the maximum amount of taxes allowed by the state, they still assumed cuts will be made to school programs in the coming year.[2]
