The North Winneshiek School District tax rate will remain at $14.77 for the 2013-2014 school year.

Last month, the Iowa Legislature approved a 2 percent increase in funding for school districts plus a 2 percent, one-time payment for the 2013-2014 school year.

Originally, the North Winneshiek School Board approved a tax rate of $15.25, but with the increase in state aid, the Board was able to maintain the previous year's levy, according to North Winneshiek Superintendent Tim Dugger.

The North Winneshiek tax levy has remained at $14.77 for the past three years. The District will receive a total of $1,750,543 in local property taxes. The District's property valuation increased 5 percent from the previous year to a total of $118,520,095.
