The Elizabethtown Independent Schools board will be considering the district's yearly tax rate at 7 p.m. Monday at the board's regular meeting.

The board is considering 69.9 cents per $100 of assessed value. This would bring in about $5.6 million, a 4 percent increase of revenue, which is the maximum available under state law without being subject to a possible referendum.

A hearing regarding the tax will be conducted at 6:15 p.m. Both the hearing and the board meeting take place in the board room at Panther Academy.

Last year's tax rate was 67.1 cents per $100.
