But the 5.8-cent levy for construction of a new high school is far from a foregone conclusion. At a special board meeting and working session last week, the five-member body heard extensive details on tax particulars from its own superintendent of schools and  two independent advisers with Ross, Sinclaire & Associates who have decades of combined experience in guiding school districts through the straits of taxation and facilities construction.
