2. Reports and Discussion Items
2.1. Budget and Tax Levy Update
Rationale: 

NDE emailed districts on Friday with a new interpretation regarding how the tax levy is set in regards to the County Treasurer's Commission Balance and calculation of the Levy Limit. Superintendents on Wednesday August 30th received additional information which essentially rescinded what was sent out on Friday. Attached is the information districts received on Friday Aug. 25th and Wednesday August 30th for clarification.  The latest interpretation keeps the proposed budget and tax request as was presented at the workshop on August 24th.
