Pearl River Week in Review: Schools Set Tax Rate, Fall Sports Get Started

Taking a look at the past week on Pearl River Patch

The Pearl River School District Board of Education approved the 2 from 2011-12, which was lower than expected, at Tuesday's meeting.

The tax rate increase was not as high as projected in the budget the voters passed in May

"It was increased assessments and the base proportion shifted. Not as much as I was hoping for, but it did shift a bit," Pearl River Director of Operations Quinton Van Wynen said.

At the same meeting, the district adopted a concussion management policy, waiving the second reading in order to allow for preseason testing that is part of the new protocols. 

Those were just two of the stories we brought you this week on Pearl River Patch.
