THANK YOU for your support!

On behalf of the students, staff, Administration and Board of Education I would like to send a sincere "Thank You" to all of you who supported our 2012 Supplemental Levy.

We completely understand that the levy was a significant increase for our tax payers and I can assure you that we as Administration, Staff and Board of Education will work diligently to ensure that these funds are used to support and maintain the highest level of quality educational services that our community has come to expect.

Thank you again for supporting the students of Genesee School District.

Mrs. Wendy Moore

Supplemental Levy Meeting - Thursday, March 8th at 6:00 p.m.

On Thursday, March 8th the Genesee District will host a public community meeting to inform patrons regarding the Supplemental levy election that will be held on March 13, 2012.

The proposed one year levy of $935,000 will help the Genesee School District maintain quality educational programs and opportunities for our students. Taking into account the property tax reduction provided by the agricultural equipment replacement exemption, which is approximately $57,693, the estimated cost of this levy will be closer to $877,307.

The cost of this levy is estimated at $5.87 per one thousand dollars of assessed valuation based on the projected property market value of $141,098,149. This levy is an increase of $1.21 per thousand dollars of assessed valuation.

The determination of the levy amount was based on the discrepancy between the state and federal revenue available to the district and the educational needs of our students as determined by the Board of Trustees.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and would like additional information, please contact Mrs. Wendy Moore at 208-285-1161.
