Lee's Summit R-7 School District

Based on current projections, does the district anticipate an operating levy increase?

Because growth is currently projected to increase in Lee’s Summit, the district does not anticipate at this time that we will need an operating levy increase. In fact, because of the Hancock Amendment, a part of the Missouri Constitution that controls the amount of money a district receives from increases in property tax assessments, the district lowered its operating tax rate this year by $0.55 last fall. That’s one of the largest rollbacks (and one of several) the district has approved in recent years.
