Tax Rate Costs District Funding

The Braymer C4 School District has a tax rate of $2.75. The district has an enrollment under 350 students which classifies it as a “Small School” in the state of Missouri. The State of Missouri provides extra operating revenue to schools under 350 students by offering a two-step funding process. The Braymer C4 School District does receive small school grant funding (1), as a school under 350 students. Because the Braymer C4 School district has a tax rate below $3.43 the district does notqualify to receive small school grant funding (2). This means that the district is giving away over $45,000 annually.
