Broken promise? School turnaround model in limbo amid district funding crisis
A divided Baldwin-Whitehall School Board Wednesday night approved a 2-mill decrease in real estate taxes for the 2014-15 school year. Board members, in a 5-4 vote, approved reducing the millage rate from 19.61 to 17.61. One mill in Baldwin-Whitehall brings in about $1.8 million.
The nomination process is now open for the Timothy M. Allwein Advocacy Award.
