The Anchorage Assembly voted Tuesday to approve the Anchorage School District's more than $885 million proposed operating budget for fiscal year 2019-2020, which includes a request for a 1.3 percent property tax increase.

The tax hike would bring in an additional $3.3 million for the district, according to documents submitted to the Assembly. 

ASD's Office of Management and Budget senior director Andy Ratliff said that money would support several areas, like updating 15-year-old curriculum and outdated classroom technology.
