Grand Forks School District officials released a revised a document Tuesday addressing taxpayer concerns over a 28.6 percent tax increase.

The district released the document Tuesday night and posted the information to its website, www.gfschools.org. A draft of the document was included in the agenda for the School Board’s Monday meeting.

School Board members spent hours editing it during a meeting on Monday after public demand grew for clarity on its budget. The district faces a nearly $6 million deficit and proposes to alleviate the shortfall with the tax increase.
