School Board members met for over an hour Thursday to continue pondering a millage election, but didn't reach a consensus on how much of a tax increase they should seek.

Millage history

The last time the Rogers School District received a millage increase was in 2003, when voters approved 6 additional mills to bring the total rate to 39.5. Since then the rate has been rolled back 1.1 mills to 38.4.
