North Shelby School District Considering New Ballot Proposal After Proposition Raiders Failure

Last week North Shelby School District voters rejected a proposed increase to the operating levy from $3.9019 to $5.3519 per hundred dollars of assessed valuation. The funds from this increase would have primarily been used for staff increases. Superintendent Tinna Croy is considering the district’s next move.

Nearly 60 percent of the vote went against Proposition Raiders. Croy says this proposal comes down to hiring and retaining teachers.

A final draft of the new ballot proposal is expected to be finalized by the end of this year.
