OH please ! nlsd 122 already gets about 46 % of my total tax bill,
Now you suggest they should get more !
The other 12 taxing bodies share what is left.(approx 54 %)
122 also have the highest rate at 2.92, at a cost for this homeowner of more than $3500.00. The district gets a lot of money from all the homeowners, millions!
And if we all gave our rebate checks to 122, do you really think it would make a difference?
A few years ago they cut out the dist.owned transportation dept. to "make money and save money". A few years ago they fired janatory staff to "save money", this year they cut teachers and aids to "save money".
How have any of this helped the district financially and how has any of this helped the children?
This year they also gave Sass & Manville raises and extended contracts.So go ahead, give your rebate to the district, Im sure they would love to take more of your money.
We should start a protest against paying these huge school fees. I know they are suppose to compare our fees to other schools. Does anyone know what happened with this? We should start a protest!
interesting

Interesting. Maybe they've compared fees with other districts and the results were not in their favor. You should ask.

How much does one pay for say one kid in grammar school?

Last year it was $287.50 for my then 8th grader. I think it stayed the same, but not sure since I'm in the high school district now. And that is on top of the property taxes they receive

You can go into the district office and they can give you the sheet that shows what each year cost. They are located on Haven and Cedar. Roughly the fees start at 261.00 for half day Kindergarten and first through 3rd 286.00 etc.

I think alot of people are not paying because at one of the school board meetings they talked about finding a creative way of collecting the fees.

Instead of refunding this money, perhaps they could fix few roads. Haven is in horrible shape, South Vine is pretty rough, and look at the roads throughout our subdivisions, atrocious. The Village decided to not have an MFT program this year, and probably won't again next year. Just wait until you lose a tire in one of the potholes, your $100 refund won't pay for that
