South Harrison School Board members held their August session following a bus ride to the South Harrison Elementary School and a look at the upgrades for that facility being completed this summer prior to the start of the new school year during a meeting held Monday night. The bus ride was taken on the new electric bus that has been purchased by the district with the help of several funding sources. The upgrades at the elementary school include new tiling and a remodel of South Harrison’s front office building at the elementary. That remodel will include an extra layer of security which will allow items to be taken to the school and placed at the elementary office window without the person needing to enter the school facility.

South Harrison’s board also approved the 2022-23 tax rate for the district during a meeting Monday night. South Harrison’s board approved tax rate of $4.33 per hundred dollars of assessed valuation. The levy breaks down to $3.68 for the incident fund and 65 cents for the capital projects fund.
