continued In addition to the budget, district voters will be asked to decide on a bus proposition that calls for the purchase of the following:
Ten 65-passenger buses
One 39- passenger bus with one to three wheelchair positions, air conditioning and with a hydraulic lift
One 48-passenger bus with air conditioning
The air-conditioned buses are required for students with special needs.
The total cost of the proposition would be $1,298,137, which would result in $61,903 in tax increases in 2014-15, or $1.80 per $100,000 of assessed value.
The district will hold a public hearing on the budget on May 14. The full budget is available on the district’s website, nscsd.org.
