  • Proposed Property Tax Increase

    The Hart County Board of Education today announces its intention to increase the 2023 property taxes it will levy this year by 3.74 percent over the rollback millage rate.


    Each year, the board of tax assessors is required to review the assessed value for property tax purposes of taxable property in the county. When the trend of prices on properties that have recently sold in the county indicate there has been an increase in the fair market value of any specific property, the board of tax assessors is required by law to re‐determine the value of such property and adjust the assessment. This is called a reassessment. 


    When the total digest of taxable property is prepared, Georgia law requires a rollback millage rate must by computed that will produce the same total revenue on the current year’s digest that last year’s millage rate would have produced had no reassessments occurred.


    The budget adopted by the Hart County Board of Education requires a millage rate higher than the rollback millage rate; therefore, before the Hart County Board of Education may set a final millage rate, Georgia law requires three public hearings to be held to allow the public an opportunity to express their opinions on the increase.


    All concerned citizens are invited to the public hearings on this tax increase to be held at the Hart County Board of Education Central Office, 284 Campbell Drive, Hartwell, Georgia on October 9, 2023 at 8:30 AM and 6:00 PM and on October 16, 2023 at 5:00 PM.

  • School Supplies for 23-24 School Year

    School supplies will once again be provided to all Hart County Charter System students free of charge this upcoming school year. ESSER III funds (also referred to as CARES III funds) were used to purchase school supplies for all students. Each classroom teacher submitted supply needs based on grade level. Supplies include backpacks but not headphones or earbuds. Although optional, parents are encouraged to purchase headphones or earbuds for their children. School-owned sets will be available for checkout for those in need.

    More information about school supplies will be available at each school's open house prior to the start of the 2023-2024 school year.
