School taxes are calculated using a formula based on your municipal property valuation and make up approximately 15% of our annual operating budget. School tax bills correspond to the school year – July 1 to June 30 and are based on information we have on file in the month of May.
As modifications to your property occur, any changes in valuations are forwarded to the school board from the various municipalities that make up our territory. Property owners are notified, in writing, of the modification by their municipality. The school board processes modifications and produces a revised tax bill with the adjustments arising from the changes in the property valuations.
In order to reduce the impact of the increase in property valuations on school taxes, school boards “average” increases over the same period as municipalities; 2, 3 or 4 years.
How is the averaging calculated?
The difference between the previous municipal valuation roll and the new roll is divided by three and added to the previous year’s valuation, whether it is an increase or a decrease.

If there was a change in valuation after January 1st, the law provides that there is no averaging.
