There will be no Weekend Backpack Food Bags this week, but will resume delivery as normal, next week, (1/30/23 to 2/2/23). Thank you for your patience!!

Election Day is next Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Please review the following information regarding the Brown County Schools Referendum and ensure you understand the facts about the ballot question and the impact of the referendum.
The proposed operating referendum rate is $0.12 per $100 of assessed property value – a $0.04 tax rate increase in the school levy. To the average home value in Brown County, this is an additional $3.26 per month. These monies will be dedicated to:
recruit and retain the "best of the best" teachers and staff for our students by offering competitive wages and benefits.
ensure the continuation of innovative programming.
maintain small class sizes.
expand our Career and Technical Education courses (building trades, manufacturing, etc.).
sustain the CRC (Career Resource Center) and adult education right in here in Nashville
sustain the addition of the Early Childhood Education Center right here in Nashville.
Brown County Schools has one of the lowest school tax rates of any corporation in this area. At $0.6499, the total tax rate for BCS is below the state median tax rate of $1.0407.
I encourage residents to utilize the Tax Calculator on our website to find out their true investment. The language on the ballot is misleading and mandated by the legislature. Use the link provided to reach the referendum page on our website.
Scroll down to The Cost and utilize our Tax Calculator .
If the referendum is not passed Brown County Schools will be forced to absorb $1.2 million dollars back into the budget, as the current referendum will expire in 2023.
If the community votes not to support our schools, we will be forced to significantly reduce programming and services across academics, the arts, and athletics; freeze salary and wages for staff; and cut jobs across the district.
