The Burke County Board of Education has tentatively adopted a millage rate which will require an increase in property taxes by 0.16 percent.

All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearing on this tax increase to be held at the Board office located at 789 Burke Veterans Parkway, Waynesboro, GA on December 10, 2014 at 5:00 pm.

Times and places of additional public hearings on this tax increase are at the Board office located at 789 Burke Veterans Parkway, Waynesboro, GA on December 17, 2014 at 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.

This tentative increase will result in a millage rate of 13.75 mills, an increase of 0.022 mills.  Without this tentative tax increase, the millage rate will be no more than 13.728 mills.  The proposed tax increase for a home with a fair market value of $100,000 is approximately $0.88 and the proposed tax increase for nonhomestead property with a fair market value of $75,000 is approximately $0.66.

All of Burke County Public Schools are School wide Title I Schools.  The Elementary And Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965 requires that parents or guardians who have children attending a Title I school be notified of how well their school is preparing the students for college and/or a career, as well as the school’s designation status under Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Wavier.

Under Georgia’s ESEA Flexibility Waiver, certain Title I schools are designated as Reward, Priority, Focus, or Alert schools. The Wavier also allows the use of the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI), which serves as a comprehensive report card for all schools in Georgia.  The CCRPI provides a score between 0-100 for each school, and that score measures how well the school is doing in preparing its students to be successful in college and/or a career.

None of Burke County Public schools have been given a school designation status at this time, and parents will be receiving school specific information regarding CCPRI scores at a later date.
