Special Education Millage Renewal on May Ballot

Local school districts are mandated by law to provide special education programs and services. However, the federal and state governments have not adequately funded special education in the past, placing the burden on local and intermediate school districts. Without additional millage funds, local school districts are forced to use general education funds to pay for special education programs and services.

On the May 2 ballot, voters will be asked to renew the Jackson County Intermediate School District Special Education Millage. A taxpayer who owns a home with a market value of $100,000 (taxable value of $50,000) would pay $77.04 per year or $6.42 per month in renewed millage.
