Many positives in Kiel school budget

Administrator Dr. Brad Ebert opened the Kiel Area School District annual meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 28 by stating since he came into the district there have been a multitude of ups and downs with consideration to the budget.

Ebert said he is very pleased with this year’s budget. “There are a lot of positives in this year’s budget,” he said.

For the 2020-’21 school budget, the State of Wisconsin will provide 43.23 percent of the revenue for KASD. This includes general and categorical aid along with the school property tax credit listed on tax statements. This year Kiel property taxes are estimated to fund 39.36 percent of the School District costs. The levy rate budgeted last year was $9.18 per $1,000 of equalized value. This year’s budget is proposed at $9.05 per $1,000 of equalized value.
