Noblesville Schools

Noblesville Schools will ask voters this Fall to nearly double a current property tax rate to expand safety measures in the wake of the school shooting there in May.

Tuesday the school board voted to seek $6.25 million a year in additional general operations funding for the next eight years, for a total of $50 million.

The current operating referendum tax rate is 18.9 cents per $100 of assessed value. Voters approved that rate in 2016. The proposed referendum would replace the 18.9 cents rate with a new rate of 37 cents per $100 of assessed value.

Schools will start soon, but where you live doesn’t necessarily determine where you go to school anymore. Families can choose where to go to school — private, charter or public school.

The aim behind providing this choice? Proponents say it will force all schools to better themselves.

Whether it has done that remains controversial. But it has given birth to a new reality for public schools: with education competition, comes the need for education marketing.

Take a minute - think about your typical morning routine.

Now, imagine your boss asks you to come in an hour earlier. You’d have to shift that routine, maybe eliminate it altogether, or else sacrifice sleep.

This is something teenagers across the country are experiencing as they’re being asked to get to school earlier than they’re used to. And it’s throwing off not only their morning routine, but their sleep schedule as well.
