FAQs: School Funding

Real Estate and Personal Property taxes are the primary funding mechanism for our public schools. Each year, school administrators determine their budgets using the assessment values and last years tax collections. A quality education is necessary for the growth of our county. An educated workforce is a key pathway to economic success. Currently, there are 10 school districts in the county. Approximately 76.3% of the average tax bill that we collect, is paid to our local schools. That is an average of $.76 of every dollar the taxpayer pays in county taxes goes directly to fund our school's operations and teacher salaries.
