School Property Taxes

School property tax rates are set by the Board of Education in August.

School tax bills are mailed to residents in August.  Tax bills are penalty-free if paid by an October deadline that will be provided to residents; after that deadline, a 2 percent penalty is added to bills. All bills must be postmarked by October 31.

District residents can look up information about past and present school tax bills by clicking on the Tax Bill Lookup link in the righthand column of this page.
