Parents Group Proposes Temporary Property Tax Hike For Springfield Schools


A parents' group is proposing a temporary four-year property tax increase for Springfield schools. 

 

"Invest in 186" says the short-term hike in intended to stop additional cuts of teaching positions and other direct classroom expenses until District 186 finances stabilize. 

 

The group is warning against an alternative plan from school board vice-president Adam Lopez for a sales tax hike.  It says the Lopez plan could provide money for new school buildings... and leave no money for teachers to staff them. 

 

Details on both proposals will be presented at tonight's school board meeting.
