September 3, 2010

     A plan from Whitko Community Schools to have a referendum on the ballot this fall for a tax levy increase is still a go, but the district will only increase the tax rate if there is a shortfall in funding from the state.
     After news that the district will get $347,000 in federal education stimulus funding for the next school year, the district will likely not need to do an increase in its tax rate until at least 2012.
