Superintendent Tim Mitchell has proposed a property tax opt out to aid the Rapid City Area School's budget crisis, Rapid City Journal reports. According to Mitchell, $3.7 million in spending would have to be cut in order to be within the budget guidelines.
If the opt out was passed, it would mean raising the district's property taxes above the state-ordered limit.
Many are hesitant to pursue an opt out as Mitchell's proposal did not include many details. Some think an opt out could be beneficial to the school system, but want more details before making a final decision.
