CONYERS -- The Rockdale County Board of Education still hasn't approved a millage rate, as it was scheduled to do this month.
Originally, the school board had planned to approve a millage rate at its July meeting, which was held Thursday, according to a budget calendar set for the year.
However, the vote was delayed because officials at Rockdale County Public Schools are waiting on the final tax digest figures from Rockdale County Tax Commissioner Dan Ray, according to Lee Davis, chief financial officer at RCPS.
"I am not certain when we will adopt," Davis said Friday.
Once he receives the figures, RCPS then will have to advertise the millage rate and the date it will be adopted at a meeting before the rate will be approved.
Unlike the budget, which was required by law to be adopted by June 30, there is no deadline for the millage rate adoption, Davis said.
The current millage rate is 24.5 mills.
A proposed millage rate for this year hasn't yet been presented to the board.
