    About Public School Tax Rates

    The first bucket is the Maintenance & Operations (M&O) budget, which funds daily costs and recurring expenditures such as teacher and staff salaries, supplies, insurance and utilities.

    The second bucket is the Interest & Sinking (I&S) budget, also known as Debt Service, which is used to repay debt for capital improvements approved by voters through bond elections.

    Proceeds from a bond issue can be used for the construction and renovation of facilities, the acquisition of land, and the purchase of capital items such as equipment, technology and transportation. By law, I&S funds cannot be used to pay M&O expenses which means that I&S funds cannot be used to pay teachers or pay for rising costs for utilities and services.
