The Parkrose Board of Education postponed a resolution referring a five-year local-option levy to voters after hearing a survey’s results of likely voters at its March meeting.
However, it resolved to revisit the idea next spring, when conditions might be more favorable.
The district hoped to add between $850,000 and $1.2 million a year to its general fund with the property tax. The additional revenue would allow the district to hire teachers addressing the district’s oversized classes.
A $200,000 home would pay an additional $170 in taxes at a rate of 85 cents per thousand of assessed value, according to figures supplied by the district.
