The Round Rock school board on Thursday will vote on a $339.4 million budget that gives raises to its 5,900 employees and bumps up the district’s contribution for health insurance.
The spending plan is up $6 million from the current year. The district’s proposed tax rate will stay the same, but because of rising property values, the owner of an average-value home — $200,264, after exemptions — will pay $2,763, up $100 from last year.
