Property Tax Freeze

SCOPE strongly opposes a property tax freeze.

  • Property taxes are the most reliable and predictable source of revenue for our school districts.

  • School district revenue must keep up with the rate of inflation as it relates to cost of operations; goods, services, payroll, benefits, etc.

  • An immediate effective date does not allow school districts adequate time to prepare.

  • School districts are in the midst of multi-year contracts that stipulate increase aligned with the Cosumer Price index (CPI).

  • The Evidence Based Funding Formula just passed and has yet to be fully implemented.
