The Oconto Unified School District will collect about 5 percent less in taxes for 2013-14 than for the previous year, under a new tax rate approved by the school board at a special meeting on Oct. 28.

The tax rate was set at $10.133 per thousand dollars valuation, which is down 2.2 percent from the $10.36 last year.

The total levy will be about $4.14 million, compared with the $4.36 million collected for 2012-13.

The special meeting was required because the state recalculate levies and tax rates for districts across Wisconsin after Gov. Scott Walker signed into law a $100 million property tax reduction approved by the legislature in a special session.

The tax cut changed the amount of state aid schools receive, and therefore affected the amount of property tax they can collect.

The levy tentative tax rate and levy approved by the board its Oct. 21 meeting were $10.24 per thousand and $4.18 million.

The board also approved high school English teacher Chris Ledvina leading a student trip to England in June. At least six students have expressed interest in the trip.
