The Hillsboro School Board finalized its 2020-21 budget Sept. 10 and approved a request from three high school seniors to allow a homecoming parade, which had been canceled.

Board members voted to keep the district’s total property tax levy at 86 mills, although increases in land and home values will allow the district to collect more money in the coming year.

Superintendent Paula Suda said the valuation of taxable land in the school district increased from $20.4 million in 2019-20 to $21.1 million 2020-21.

The higher valuation will allow the district to collect $1.44 million in local property taxes in 2020-21, an increase of $47,700 from the previous year.

Suda said administrators have had to budget for more expenses in 2020-21 for higher wages for staff, more technology and costs related to stemming the spread of the coronavirus.
