The Clinton Board of Education's levy for 2017-18 is down nearly a quarter-million dollars.
According to Superintendent Curt Nettles, the levy is down over $200-thousand but Nettles says that isn't a large amount for a district of Clinton's size but they will have to tighten their belts a little.
Nettles says finding ways to cut back $200-thousand is not a difficult challenge as the increased technology in the district will help save on several costs. He also notes it will not effect staffing.
According to Nettles, the lower EAV doesn't necessarily mean anything about the future of the plant but the district has been looking at ways to scale back because of the uncertainty of the plant's future.
