Explanation of New School Funding Model (HB 110)

Through our Strategic Planning process, it has been brought to my attention that we rated low in knowing the financial status of the district.  So I’m aiming to change that!  Each month I will give you a little snippet of our accounts and let you know any pertinent financial information. 

So at the end of September 2023, our bank statements looked like this:

Daily Operations = $2,843,415.67

Investments = $2,047,134.85.
This year (2023) is a reappraisal year for Clinton County. Last year's state average increase for property values was 24%. The range for this year has been 18 - 40%. We should know what our increase is soon.  Warren County goes next year and is looking at no less than a 30% increase in property values. Taxes will not increase that much, just the values. There are exemptions that residents qualify for as well as different millage rates.

To give you a frame of reference, it costs our district an average of $460,000 for each payroll (semimonthly), $245,000 for our insurance each month (District side only), and $10,000 for Medicare each month (District side only).

Granted, we get about $324,500 twice a month from State Funding (which in addition covers our STRS/SERS [pensions] each month).

For our income tax, we get quarterly payments at the ends of January, April, July, and October.  2024 will be the last year your income will be taxed under this levy. We will be seeking a renewal in March of 2024 for 2025 - 2029.
