WHAT: On Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 3 p.m., the Orleans Parish School Board will hold a public hearing to consider the following:

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, pursuant to Article VII, Section 23 (B) and (C) of the Louisiana Constitution of 1974 and La. R.S. 47:1705(B) that a public hearing of the Orleans Parish School Board (the “School Board”), will be held at its regular meeting place at the Orleans Parish School Board Offices located at 2401 Westbend Pkwy., Room 1050, New Orleans, LA 70114 on November 19, 2019, at 3:00 p.m., to consider levying additional or increased millage rates without further voter approval or adopting the adjusted millage rate after reassessment and rolling forward to millage rates not to exceed the prior year’s maximum.

The estimated amount of tax revenues to be collected in the calendar year 2020 from the increased millage is $193,233,741 compared to the tax revenues of $166,974,799 to be collected for calendar year 2019. The increased tax revenues attributable to the millage increase are $26,258,942. The foregoing estimated revenues are composed of the Constitutional Millage and the following designated millages of the School Board: A (School Books, Materials, and Supplies), B (Discipline and Dropout Programs), C (Employee Salaries, Benefits, and Incentives), D (Air Conditioning, Asbestos Removal, and Facilities Maintenance), and Capital Repair Millage. The School Board intends to consider at the public hearing levying additional or increased millage rates without further voter approval.
