The Franklin Special School District is set to approve a $48.2 million budget Monday night with no property tax increase.

John McAdams, associate director of schools for finance and administration, said the property tax rate is set to stay at 82.9 cents per $100 of assessed property value.

“The proposed budget is the exact same,” he said.

The capital budget is set at $1.2 million and the debt service budget is $6.9 million, he said.

The capital budget will include new school buses, new technology, such as Chromebooks, and maintenance.

The school system is currently working on almost $14 million in capital improvement projects. Renovations at Franklin Middle School are just one of the several large projects underway.

The budget meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. on Monday at Poplar Grove Middle School.
