D204 Tax Levy
The District 204 School Board voted to approve a tentative tax levy that’s up by 4.1 percent from last year. With new property built in the district and rising property values, the average homeowner in DuPage County can expect to pay 2.1 percent more than what they’re currently paying to District 204. The increase is projected to bring the district an additional $9.5 million. There will be a public hearing on December 10 before the school board votes whether or not to approve the levy.
