State School Support has
REDUCED PROPERTY TAX
Oregon state school support has brought outstanding
benefits to Oregon’s schools and Oregon property
taxpayers. State support has played a vital part in
providing needed equipment and supplying necessary
teachers for Oregon’s surging school population.
It has saved MARION county property
taxpayers $5,468,378 in the past 7 years
To educate Marion county boys and girls for the past 7 years required
local property taxes of $9,886,758. In addition, state school support
from income tax sources supplied more than $5,468,378. In other words,
for every $2.00 raised by local school district property taxes, another
$1.00 has come from state sources.
School population will double in IO years
More state aid is needed to relieve rapidly increasing local
district property taxes.
