If next Year's Budget passes  taxes will increase by 
Every vote counts. This year’s budget only passed by 18 votes

This is how the school tax cap works
If a school district submits a budget that is within the cap, a simple majority vote can pass it. If it fails, the
school district may have a second vote, but if the second vote fails, or the district chooses not to resubmit
the budget, the tax levy will be frozen at the previous year’s level.

Lkewise, if a school district submits a budget that exceeds the cap, a super majority vote of 60% is needed for passage. If it fails, the district may have a second vote. If the budget fails twice, or the district chooses not to resubmit, the tax levy will be frozen at the previous year’s level
