Renewal of the Current Supplemental Levy for Plant/Facilities at $1.

2 Million Dollars Each Year

No dollar increase and no impact on local school tax levy. Funds are used for approved plant/facilities projects and not for salaries, benefits or general operations. The districts 10 year plant facility plan calculates our actual need at $1.6 million per year to maintain current status, but we are holding the line at the current funding level. The Parent/Patron Advisory Committee provides input for developing our plant/facilities plan. The School Board makes the final decisions on project approval and funding. Our focus is on preventative maintenance and upkeep which is more cost effective than postponing regular maintenance/repair. The district is one of the largest employers in the county. The first $300,000 is put directly into student technology each year.

Minidoka School District has one of the lowest levy rates in the State of Idaho. In 2008, we experienced the lowest levy rate in the history of Minidoka School District. The slight increase in levy rate for the past two years is mainly a reflection of decrease in market value appraisal. There are several reasons for the low levy rates in spite of two outstanding bond debts and an ongoing supplemental levy for plant/facilities. One reason is due to legislation that was passed in 2002 for bond equalization monies (Idaho Code 33-906). Bond equalization revenue is a system by which the state provides subsidies of the principal and interest for school bonds passed after September 15th, 2002. Minidoka County Schools received $417,000 in bond equalization money from the State for 2011. Another bill that was passed in 2006 was an amendment of Idaho Code 63-602G, which increased property tax relief allowing a homeowners exemption of 50% to include up to one acre of land in the value up to $150,000 of property value. The most recent legislation was HB 1 that was passed on August 20, 2007. HB 1 eliminated the M & O levy and provided replacement funding for the educational support program by increasing the statewide sales tax by one percent. Due to these legislation bills, local tax payers paid $158.00 less in 2006 an additional $50.00 less in 2007 and an additional $18.00 less in 2008 in taxes for school district levies for every $100,000 home value. The graph to the right shows the actual trend in school district levies and the amount paid for a $100,000 home for the past 12 years.
