The Rochelle Township High School board approved the district's tax levy last night. The figure was about a half percent lower that in 2012.
Superintendent Jamie Craven also said that the tax rate for the district will rise about a penny to $2.59.
The board approved a 5-year lease agreement with Nexus Systems, Incorporated as the monthly cost for the district will be $4,728, the same figure as the previous deal. The agreement includes all new copier machines and some printer replacements.
The district is also looking at purchasing a new 77 capacity bus. This would replace a 2009 model.
Congratulations goes out to RTHS Senior Brendan O'Rorke who recently scored a perfect 36 score on his ACT exam. This is the 2nd year in a row a student at RTHS had a perfect score on the ACT. David Lopez did it in 2012.
Finals are going on this week for students at RTHS as the 1st semester comes to an end.
