PLEASE VOTE on March 8 - Maintenance and Operations Levy 2011-2012

The Genesee Joint School District Board of Trustees voted on January 10, 2011 to maintain the Maintenance and Operations levy amount of $700,000 from the previous year. The estimated cost will be $4.76 per one thousand dollars. Last year it was $4.94 per one thousand dollars of assessed value.

The Maintenance and Operations Levy traditionally supports school programs and services not funded by the State of Idaho. It provides for ongoing operational needs which include: utilities, building maintenance, athletics, special education, vocational programs, technology, custodial supplies and personnel.

The District remains committed to careful management of these funds. The yearly support of our community is needed and greatly appreciated.
