During its regular July meeting, the Cartersville City School Board voted to set its millage of 17.93, a rollback from the current rate of 18.23 mills.

The new rate is based upon no significant changes to the preliminary tax digest.  

The recommended millage rate "ensures the school system equitable funding for its annual budget based upon anticipated local tax revenues," the system said in a press release.

When local tax revenue is anticipated to increase, then the school system has the option of keeping the millage the same — thus collecting more taxes — or rolling it back to a level designed to collect monies which will generate the same dollars as the previous year.

The city school system chose to rollback local school millage rates for city residents, which represents only the second rollback in the last 10 years (the previous one in 2007). The school system will continue to offer a full 180-day school year for all students and 190-day work calendar for teachers.

The Board also approved two policies: one new and one revised.

The new policy provides guidance for the naming of school facilities or parts of facilities.

The system revised its Employee Complaints & Grievances Policy to better clarify the timeframe for conducting investigations and hearings involving certified employee complaints.
