The budget is up but taxes are not in the Walton County School District as the early budget numbers shot up for the coming school year.

The Walton County Board of Education approved the tentative budget for the 2021-22 school year, voting 6-0, with only District 2 member Karen Brown absent, to go forward with the $134.8 million budget, an increase over last year’s $131.2 million budget.
