In accordance with Georgia state law, Jackson County Schools will be holding three hearings to set the millage rate. It should be noted that the millage rate will not increase from the current 19.131, however; the taxes generated will increase based on increased property value. As such, the hearings, by law, will be held to allow for public input.
The additional revenues are being applied to purchasing additional buses, technology and to offset increased state-mandated county-paid teacher retirement contributions.
Please see the press relase and associated advertisement.
