Local school districts are continuing to enjoy the support of the voters after budget overrides were approved on the ballot earlier this month.Students at Mingus Union High School head out to the busses on Friday, Nov. 15, as the last bell of the week rings, announcing the weekend’s arrival. Now, with the overrides approved and passed, Mingus, along with Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District can move forward without having to make budget cuts.

The state allows school districts to ask for a budget override, meaning the schools can tax property owners in the district beyond their set spending limits.

The Mingus Union High School District has been operating on a 10 percent budget override since 1985, MUHSD Superintendent Paul Tighe said.

The Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District has been doing so since 1993.
