THE CDA SCHOOL DISTRICT IS ASKING VOTERS TO APPROVE TWO LEVIES ON MARCH 14, 2023
$25M/year....FOREVER (or until $25M isn’t enough)
Equates to $95.21/$100,000 assessed property value.
SUPPLEMENTAL LEVY pays for ONLY the first payment of items that have continuous fees: MORE curriculum & applicable licenses, new staffing, software, more teacher compensation, etc. This levy will be ON TOP of the $330M Governor Little earmarked for school districts and teacher’s salaries.
SCHOOL PLANT FACILITIES LEVY (SPFL)
$5M/year for 5 years
Equates to $19.00/$100,000 assessed property value.
SPFL LEVY is the same levy that the voters REJECTED in August, 2022 but the school district is asking for the money again.
NEED TO DO SOME QUICK MATH?
2021 - Last supplemental levy voted/approved by community
Equated to $76.17/$100k taxable assessed property value
Example: If your home was assessed at $500,000 in 2021, you were paying ~$380.85/year.*
2023 - Proposed supplemental levy
Equates to $95.21/$100k taxable assessed property value
Example: Now your home is worth 2x as before, assessed at $1,000,000 in 2023. You will be paying ~$952.10/year.*
This does not include the additional $190/year
SPFL levy amount!
