Tax bills are out and no one should be confused about why they are up so much.

When I bought my house in 2002 the current VASD school tax on my bill was $3,086, my new tax for the VASD is $4,813 — an increase of $1,727(56%). Same house!

Good schools are important but the VASD needs to evaluate their spending.
