The Early County School Board will make an important decision tomorrow.

Members will be deciding the district's millage rate tomorrow morning.
Last year the rate was 15½.

The board isn't asking for an increase this year and expects the proposed rate to pass.

"We count on the local taxes to bring in a good bit of revenue for our school system. The 15 1/2 mills will bring in $6 million dollars.
So it's important we must set the millage rate annually," Assistant Superintendent of Finance, Stella Smith said.

The millage rate makes up about 30% of the school district's budget.
