Thank You for Supporting Our School District

On Behalf of the School Board, Administration, Students and Staff of Genesee School District, I would like to thank you for supporting our 2018 Supplemental Levy.

Your support enables the district to continue to provide the quality education that our students will need to be successful. Your "yes" vote continues to show students and others that education is valued among the community. By supporting public education you are enabling us to be able to provide our students with skills and tools to be successful in the future.

As District Superintendent, I appreciate your support and hope to continue to be able to provide our children with the quality education that our children deserve and need. It is a pleasure to be a member of such a strong, supportive community.

Our school district wouldn't be the great institution it is today without such great community support. Thank you for voting YES!

Sincerely,
Dr. Wendy Moore
 Superintendent

Supplemental Levy - Please vote on March 13, 2018

SUPPLEMENTAL LEVY ELECTION 


WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE LEVY?
The Genesee Joint School District #282 will ask voters on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 to RENEW the proposed one-year levy of $935,000. This supplemental levy allows the district to  maintain quality educational programs and opportunities for students of the Genesee Joint School District #282.

This levy is a RENEWAL of the 2017/18 levy

The determination of the levy amount is based on the discrepancy between the revenue available to the district from state and federal funding 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 $57,725 and the personal business property tax exemption , which is approximately $5,500. The estimated cost of this levy will be approximately  $871,775.

This supplemental levy allows  the district  to support educational and extra-curricular programs for students attending Genesee Joint Schools #282 for the 2018/2019 school year.  The proposed levy provides necessary funds that state and federal dollars do not cover. 

If you have any questions regarding the levy please contact Dr. Wendy Moore, Superintendent or Lezah Shinkle, Business Manager. 

If you have questions regarding the voting process, we encourage you to contact Latah County Auditors Office, Room 101, 522 South Adams, Moscow, ID.
