The Herricks Board of Education Thursday night set the tax levy for the upcoming school year at $104,764,474.
The levy results in a tax increase of 1.83%, which was voted on earlier in the year as part of the budget.
President James Gounaris also thanked Herricks administration for the work they’ve done following an internal audit update from Richard Coffey on the district’s annual risk assessment.
“We received a pretty amazing report and we’re really proud of the team and what they do here,” Gounaris said. “Thank you for confirming their work is very good and the district’s work is excellent.”
In unrelated district news, the board agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement through June 30, 2026, with the Herricks Teachers’ Association. The agreement added coaching positions to the agreement, which the district negotiated stipends for.
The board also accepted a donation from the Herricks Athletics Boosters of an indoor scoreboard for the Herricks High School small gymnasium.
The next Board of Education meeting will be on Thursday, Aug. 24, at 6 p.m.
