Letter from Our Superintendent
Bruneau-Grand View Patrons,
In early December, the school board asked that an ad-hoc levy Committee bring a recommendation whether or not to ask the voters for an operational levy to be placed on the May election ballot. With the reduction of student enrollment and the end of Federal Cares Act funds, the committee recommended asking voters to approve a two-year levy to continue operations and maintenance of the district. It was recommended the proposed levy be in the amount of $650,000 per year for two years.
Purpose Approximate Amount Allocated:
- Salaries/Benefits - $474,509
- Technology Services/Supplies/Equipment - $65,500
- Athletics/Salaries/Benefits/Supplies/Tournaments - $92,992
- Ground Maintenance/Building Care Supplies - $16,999
Total Annual Levy Amount: $650,000
The $650,000 could be funded entirely by levying taxes. A second option being considered is to dip into the district fund balance, which is set aside for future consolidation and expansion projects, dividing the levied amount of $400,000 and supplementing the remaining $250,000 by using the school districts fund balance (The estimated average annual cost to the taxpayer on the proposed $650,000 levy is a tax of $212.50 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value, per year, based on current conditions. The estimated average annual cost to the taxpayer on the proposed $400,000 levy is a tax of $130.80 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value, per year, based on current conditions).
The Bruneau-Grand View School District trustees would like to hear from their constituents regarding any questions about the need for a levy to operate the district, or the amounts recommended in the two proposed resolutions.
