The North Hills school board Thursday approved a $72.6 million budget for 2014-15 that raises taxes by 0.20 mills.
The new tax rate will be 17.26 mills, the fifth lowest in the county. The new rate will increase taxes on a $135,000 home by $27 per year. One mill raises $2.6 million for the district.
The $530,000 raised by the millage increase will be used for the district’s Innovations in Education plan, which will update the middle and high school libraries, create a center for science, technology, engineering, art and math at the middle school and eventually provide an iPad to each student.
