How does Watson Chapel compare to other districts in Jefferson County? Our millage rate has been below all the others for some time. The increase would keep us lower than others.
How will the millage increase affect you and your family?
How will money from the millage be used? The state is providing $14.5 million to help build a new high school. WC is responsible for the remaining $8.6 million. 3.7 mils from the millage will go towards that expense. The other 2 mils will go towards maintenance & operations.
Watson Chapel needs your help! We are asking for a millage increase on August 9 to help with the cost of a new, safe high school for our students. An increase would still keep us below other districts in Jefferson County while investing in our students and community!
