After approving the preliminary budget for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 last June (Budget Message) and after Pike and Ralls Counties certified the Assessed Valuation in our district, the board voted to approve the tax levy at their meeting last week. Our tax rate is one of the lowest in NE Missouri and is slightly lower than last year. Our budget is built with input from many sources and leverages our district revenue to meet our district expenses while maintaining a balanced budget. This is the forth year in a row that the Bowling Green R-1 School District has had a balanced budget. Dr. Frederickson used this PPT to share some other updates to staff at our Board Breakfast last week. The Board of Education also heard updates regarding our Curriculum development process.
