Shortly after the start of the school year, all Kentucky school districts must determine local school tax rates. The LaRue County Schools Board of Education is considering proposed 2019 tax rates of 51 cents per $100 of assessed value on real property and 51 cents per $100 of assessed value on personal property.
The district is committed to keeping community members informed about our schools’ funding needs as well as how local taxes affect our schools. As an education provider, a resource for families, a major employer and a catalyst for preparing our youth for college and career, our school district is an asset to everyone in the LaRue County community.
District leadership, including our elected Board of Education members, need to know about the support and concerns of our community as well.
Community members are encouraged to find answers to common questions here. If you have additional questions, please contact the superintendent’s office at 270-358-4111 or your board representative.
The Board of Education will listen to public comments on the proposed tax rates at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, in the LaRue County High School media center. A special board of education meeting will follow, where the board is expected to vote on the 2019 tax rates.
