The San Marcos Consolidated ISD board of directors will set the 2022 tax rate at Monday’s regular board meeting.
Trustees will discuss accepting the no-new-income tax rate and the voter-approved tax rate for the 2022 tax year for SMICSD. Council will then consider an order to set the 2022 tax rate
Last year’s tax rate was $1.070782 per $100 of taxable assessment. This year’s no-new-income tax rate is $1.056849 per $100 of property value, while the voter approval tax rate is $1.133782 per $100.
The proposed tax rate is $1.133782, including $0.8646 for maintenance and operations and $0.269182 for payment of principal and interest on guaranteed debt. The proposed motions state that the property tax would be increased by adding a “tax rate of 1.133782, which is effectively a 7.28% increase in the tax rate.”
The board will also consider accepting certified assessment rolls for the SMICSD.
In other matters, the administrators will discuss and make possible arrangements for an allowance for each employee who is required to take Reading Academy training.
A discussion will take place regarding a change in the composition of the Board from five single-member constituencies and two deputy heads to seven single-member constituencies. Council will discuss and take possible steps to reactivate the Citizens’ Advisory Committee on seven single-member districts.
Trustees will also discuss and take possible steps to revise its board’s operating procedure and appoint two school members to an intergovernmental panel comprised of the City of San Marcos, Hays County and SMICSD.
The board will consider approving the 2022-23 Student Code of Conduct and approving the Grading Guidelines.
Trustees will also consider passing the resolution to identify unsafe conditions within two miles of a school campus. According to the board book, SMICSD may apply to the Commissioner of Education for “an additional amount of up to 10% of its regular transportation allowance to be used for the transportation of students living within two miles of the school they attend and who would be subject to dangerous traffic conditions if they walked to school.
