Also with a contingency budget, the tax rate could be raised.
Noetzel said the district wanted to get this information to the public far in advance of when the budget is scheduled to be voted on.
"We wanted them to be fully informed about what it means because this is kind of a different year," he said.
The Board of Education will meet Tuesday, April 21, to adopt the budget, and a public hearing will be held on the budget on Tuesday, May 5, at 7 p.m. at Saddlewood Elementary School. Voters can vote on the budget at all five of the district's elementary schools on Tuesday, May 19, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.""
