bad news

Even with building and department budgets

frozen for the 4th straight year, a charter

school not opening, revenue from our solar

projects (electricity savings and SREC), energy

conservation program, facilities rentals,

preschool tuition… the proposed budget was

more than $2 million over the Tax Levy Cap

Bad News!
good news

EHT School District receives $2,275,704

in unexpected additional state aid!

This additional state aid (only a fraction of what the state’s funding formula should provide EHT)

means the district does not have to reduce $2 million to get to within the required 2% Tax Levy Cap!
