Genesee School District seeks RENEWAL of 2013 levy

The Genesee School district will ask voters on March 11, 2014 to renew the proposed one-year levy of $935,000.  This levy is a renewal of the 2012 and the 2013 levies. 

The determination of the levy amount is based on the discrepancy between the revenue available to the District from other sources and the educational needs determined by the Board of Trustees. Taking into account the property tax reduction provided by the agricultural equipment replacement exemption, which is approximately $46,211,  and the personal business property tax exemption, which is approximately $6,000, the estimated cost of this levy will be  $871,307.

This supplemental levy allows  the District  to maintain educational, sports and other extra-curricular programs for students attending Genesee Schools for the 2014/15 school year.  The proposed levy provides the necessary funds that State and Federal Dollars do not cover.  

We will be hosting two community meetings regarding the proposed levy.  Please join us on Feb. 18th or March 4th  at 6:00 p.m. for levy information.

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