The mill rate for the 2007-08 school year was set by the Board of Education at theAnnual Meeting held in October. The millrate was set using the State of Wisconsinrevenue cap formula. This year’s mill rateis 10.16 – up seven-tenths of a mill fromthe previous year.The District continues to grow. The totalnumber of students enrolled at Kohler Schools this year is 612. Since the 2004-05school year, the school has seen a 20 per-cent increase in students who are residentsof the Village, and an 11 percent increase inOpen Enrollment students. Open enroll-ment students continue to be 15 percent of the total student population, which bringsin over $550,000 for District operations.Individual tax bills may vary due to thegrowth or decline of property value in eachmunicipality located within the District.For example, the Village of Kohler’s worthdecreased 0.3 percent this year while the property in the Town of Wilson that is locat-ed within the School District boundariesgrew at 7.9 percent. See the second chart below for Municipality Equalized Valuecomparisons.The District received over $150,000 of extra state aid this year than what was pro- jected due to the late biennium budget bythe State of Wisconsin. SchoolSuperintendent Jeff Dickert reported at theAnnual Meeting of the District that state aidhad been decreasing 15 percent annuallysince 2003. He noted that this change due tothe lateness of the budget process will netthe taxpayers of Kohler Schools over $800,000 in tax relief over the next decade.Kohler was one of the few Districts affect-ed positively by the late budget processaccording to Dickert.The first graph below shows the contin-ued downward trend of the District’s millrate over the last 20 years.
