On the election ballot for the upcoming general election, Jackson Township residents will be asked to approve or deny a $4,035,000 tax increase for the public schools.

Township officials estimate that the average homeowner's annual property tax bill would increase $96 if this tax increase is approved.

The Jackson School District is inviting the public to a public forum where you can learn more about the proposed tax increase.

The public forum about the vote will be held tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center at the Jackson Memorial High School. 

School officials stated that the tax increase, which, if approved by the voters, would become permanent, would help better serve the needs of students by providing funds for the following positions: 6 guidance counselors; 2 student assistance counselors; 1 non-public student coordinator; 1 nonpublic secretary; 8 interventional teachers; 10 elementary teachers; 12 secondary teachers; 4 child study team members; 4 ESL teachers. The tax increase would fund their salaries and their employee benefits.

Jackson houses approximately 7,214 students in 10 school buildings from grades preschool through 12th grade. 

"Providing a thorough and efficient educational program for the students of Jackson is our number one priority!" stated School District officials.
