Flossmoor School District 161 is moving forward with a 2020 levy that marks a 2.68% increase over last year’s extension, but the failure of Illinois’ “fair tax” amendment and a significant reassessment of commercial property raised some new financial questions.

The school board voted unanimously on Monday, Nov. 9, to approve a tentative levy of $24.43 million, a 2.68% increase over the 2019 extension of $23.80 million — the 2.3% Consumer Price Index plus an attempt to capture an estimated $500,000 in new property, according to Associate Superintendent Frances LaBella.
