OK'd for publication
Tonganoxie -- The Tonganoxie school board on Monday night approved publishing of a $9.25 million budget for the upcoming year, slightly higher than last year's budget of $8.85 million.
The levy for next year's budget will be 41.03 mills, also higher than this year's levy of 35.87 mills, Supt. Richard Erickson said.
A mill is $1 in property taxes for every $1,000 in assessed valuation.
The board decided to keep textbook, activity and lunch fees at the same price as last year, Erickson said.
Members also set next year's graduation ceremony for 7 p.m. Saturday, May 20 at the Tonganoxie High School football field.
Classes in Tonganoxie begin Aug. 19.
