Monticello CUSD #25
(Newsweek) – The Newsweek High School Rankings—recognizing the achievements of the best public high schools in the United States for college readiness—have been published for more than a decade. Since 2014, Newsweek has published two separate lists in an effort to address the complexities of assessing the “best” high schools when students’ socioeconomic backgrounds are taken into account. Now, in collaboration with research partner Westat, Newsweek on August 19 will present the 2015 list of “America’s Top High Schools”—an ‘absolute’ list that ranks schools solely based on performance—and “Beating The Odds,” a ‘relative’ list that ranks schools based on performance, while also accounting for student poverty rates.
The Monticello CUSD #25 total school tax rate for upcoming bills will be $3.3373 per $100 of assessed valuation in Piatt County. This is a reduction of $0.013 from last year’s tax rate. The district saw an EAV increase of 2.4%. Our tax rate continues to be the lowest of all school districts in Piatt, Macon, Champaign, DeWitt, and Ford counties as well as in the entire state of Illinois for unit school districts. Area school tax rates can be found HERE.
