Referendum Information

On February 12, 2019, the locally elected Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township Board passed a resolution establishing that the Corporation will pursue a referendum that would, if passed by the voters residing in the district, allow for a new referendum tax rate not to exceed $0.2890 and to discontinue the current referendum.

This referendum will allow us to continue to provide the high level of education the 6,810 students of our school district deserve. Please click on the links below for additional information regarding the upcoming referendum.

Referendum Uses

Funds from the operating referendum will support student transportation, student and staff safety, building maintenance, and electricity.

The calculated amount from the proposed school operating referendum is based on a tax rate of $0.2890. This is a reduction of the current tax rate of $0.2986 that is in effect until 2021.

MSD of Decatur Township Schools invites you to join us for a series of public meetings to provide you with more information about the proposed referendum.
