Schools skip tax increase
Educating Tunica County’s global leaders will cost much the same as last year, according to Superintendent Steve Chandler.
The Tunica County School District has budgeted $24,316, 039 for fiscal year 2013. Chandler said a decrease in the county’s assessed value will change the percentage collected from ad valorem taxes, but an increase in taxes is not on the way.
This year’s budget will include allocations for an alternative school in the district, to be housed in an isolated building at Dundee Elementary.
