The Chico school board will hold a public hearing on its proposed budget and tax rate at Monday’s meeting.
Following the public hearing, the board is expected to approve the items.
A total tax rate of $1.22359 per $100 valuation is proposed, which includes a maintenance and operations tax rate of $1.04 and debt service tax rate of $0.18359. That represents a decrease of just over three cents from last year’s rate.
Other agenda items include approval of the school vendor list, fund balance designations, policy changes, teacher appraisal calendar, designation of teacher appraisers, a student leadership course and a review of campus schedules in addition to routine items.
The meeting, which is open to the public, is at 6:30 p.m. in Room 150 at Chico Elementary School, 1120 Park Road.
