Board sees busy agenda ahead of 2022-23 school year


The Lebanon R-3 School Board was met with a busy agenda Tuesday, Aug. 9 as it recognized excellence, progress and gave approval to multiple items. 

The school district congratulated the Lebanon Schools transportation team for recent accolades. The  transportation department’s approval rating on the annual MO State Highway Patrol school bus inspection was 88.7%, which won them the Total Fleet Excellence Award. 

Amanda Perschall, a LHS teacher and Lebanon representative for the National Education Association thanked the Board for their investment in teacher and staff pay. To-date, the Lebanon School Board has approved the addition of over $7 million to staff pay and benefits over the last four years, which is on track to meet the district’s promise from Proposition Lebanon Schools. 

A tax rate hearing was held, as required annually. However, no speakers were present. The tax rate is calculated to produce substantially the same revenues as required in the annual budget. The Board has sole authority in determining what part of the total authorized rate shall be used to provide revenue for each of the funds.
