School District Tax Policy

A school district's property tax rate consists of a maintenance and operations (M&O) tax rate and, if applicable, an interest and sinking (I&S) tax rate. The M&O tax rate provides funds for maintenance and operations. The I&S tax rate provides funds for payments on the debt that finances a district's facilities. The calculation of state funding for school districts is tied to tax effort; thus, tax rates provide an essential component in the state’s school finance formulas.
