Endowment covers textbook rental fees


As school begins today (Thursday), once again Switzerland County parents will benefit financially thanks to the Switzerland County School Endowment Corporation.

Again this year, all book rental fees that would normally be paid by parents as they enroll their students in school will instead be paid for by a gift from the endowment corporation, saving all parents with children in school money.

Also: the endowment corporation has again voted unanimously to pay the debt service portion of the school’s tax levy that is on every county landowner’s property taxes.

By paying that portion of the school levy, every county property owner is seeing a savings on their property taxes.

The Switzerland County School Endowment Corporation uses funds from riverboat revenue sharing to assist all of the county schools and taxpayers.
