* Please note that the projected homestead education rates contained in the town and school district annual reports were no longer correct by the time the reports were printed and delivered. As a result of revised state revenue expectations, the preliminary legislative depiction of the 2021/22 education rate environment drives down the expected rates. The FY2022 EM Tax Rate Worksheet for Town Meeting reflects this updated information. WCUUSD provided an updated homestead education rate sheet covering all five district towns: February 4, 2021 WCUUSD Revised Education Rate Sheet As always, education rate projections will likely continue to shift until the rates are finalized in June.
