The Jackson County School System millage rate will roll back to 19.131 mills this year.
The Jackson County Board of Education approved the rollback at a special meeting Oct. 5.
The new rate was rolled back .145 mills from last year’s rate, due to a projected 6.6 percent increase in the system’s tax digest.
“We’re trying to follow through with what we promised that we would rollback when we could,” said board member Lynn Wheeler.
The board also approved its bond rate, which will remain at 2.7 mills.
