  • Argo Board of Education
    Argo Community High School Board of Education votes to abate $1.9 million from its 2018 Tax Levy.

    New provisions of the Evidence-Based Funding model for Illinois schools provides $50 million this year in Property Tax Relief Grant funds. The Illinois State Board of Education provided $50 million in property tax relief grants to eligible school districts.

    In December 2018, Argo applied to the Illinois State Board of Education for consideration for a Property Tax Relief Grant. In January 2019 the district was informed by the State Board of Education that Argo Community High School District 217 was eligible to receive a grant totaling $1,837,282.46. As part of this grant, the district will abate $1,938,495.69 in taxes from its 2018 Tax Levy. What this means is that the district will instruct the Cook County Clerk to lower its tax levy on local businesses and home owners by $1.9 million or approximately 6.78%. This is a win-win for the local property owners.

    Argo Business Manager, Joe Murphy calculates that this abatement will lower the effects of the preliminary tax rate of this year’s levy from 3.875% to 3.6124%. For the average homeowner, this will translate into a $153 decrease from the original Argo tax levy request. The Argo Board of Education approved a resolution at its Monday, March 18, 2019 board meeting authorizing the district to instruct the County Clerk to reduce the original approved levy by the $1.9 million amount.

    Terry Pappas, President of the Argo Community High School Board of Education says; “This program and grant are a great first step in providing local property owners with some relief from the ongoing State educational funding challenges.” Argo Community High School has made many efforts over the past several years to address this issue, one of them being the waiving of registration fees for students four out of seven years. Argo Community High School is grateful to see the State of Illinois created this grant as part of the new Evidence-Based Funding model.

    Argo was one of only thirty school districts in the State to receive funding from this grant.
