Buhl School District Levy Information

Updated: 3 days ago

Dear Parents/Guardians, Buhl Community and Staff,


I would like to start by thanking you for your continued support of education in our district. It is our school board, administration and staff’s goal to be fiscally responsible with the resources you provide as taxpayers. These resources help our students gain the skills necessary to be successful when they graduate. 


The Buhl School District will be asking the community for a $650,000 supplemental levy. This would replace the current $400,000 levy that expires in June. Levy dollars help make up the difference between what the state provides for K-12 education and what it actually costs the district to maintain the operations and programs provided for our students. 


This is an increase from our current supplemental levy, which would mean an increase of $1.89 per month per $100,000 of assessed value based on the projected rates. The Buhl School District has had a supplemental levy since 2014 to help close the gap in funding. This levy would be used to maintain staffing levels, programs for our students, transportation costs and maintenance costs.


More information can be found on our website under the District tab. I am also available to answer any questions by calling 208-543-6436 or emailing aoparnico@buhlschools.org. Please remember to vote at your local precinct on May 21, 2024.


Respectfully,


Angie Oparnico

Superintendent

Buhl School District #412


The estimated average annual cost to the taxpayer on the proposed levy is a tax of $58.96 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value, per year, based on current conditions. The proposed levy replaces an existing levy that expires on Jul 1, 2024, and that currently costs $36.28 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value. Therefore, if the proposed levy is approved, the tax per $100,000 of taxable assessed value is expected to increase by $22.68 per $100,000 of taxable assessed value.
