2015 school budgets

Just 27 school districts have indicated preliminary plans to try to override the property-tax cap in their May budget votes, state records show. That’s slightly more than the 19 schools that overrode the cap last year, but still a small fraction of the nearly 700 school districts in the state. The tax cap, which limits the growth in property taxes this year to about 2 percent a year, is complicated this year because schools have yet to find out what their state aid will be.

Based on data that was supplied to the state Comptroller's office as of March 16, 2015. A handful of schools had not supplied information on their proposed budgets.
