John Mason of the Register-Star reports on the Germantown School District's "dire" financial picture. School Superintendent Patrick Gabriel said the new state-mandated two-percent limit on tax levy increases has the business office projecting a $2 million deficit in 2013-2014, and a $4.6 million deficit in 2014-2015. Gabriel said he may recommend to the board a five percent tax levy hike. That would require a supermajority -- 60 percent of voters at the polls in May under state law.
