Sangamon County School Facility Sales Tax

On November 6, 2018, the voters of Sangamon County will be asked to approve a proposal to provide funding to all county school districts through a 1-cent retail sales tax increase.

The revenue from this Sangamon County School Facility Sales Tax will be generated from Sangamon County residents and more importantly from the people who visit and travel through Sangamon County.

The revenue can only be used to maintain and improve school facilities or to make payments on existing bond debt.

The Sangamon County School Facility Sales Tax is a shift from exclusively relying on local property taxes to fund school facilities.

The link below is a copy of the WCUSD#15 FY19 Budget and Financial Projection presentation. Due to historical lack of linear revenue from the state, the District has been deficit spending for the last several years. Due to our Equalized Assessed Evaluation (EAV) increasing on an average of 4.2% over the past 10 years, our only guaranteed increase in District revenue is the increase in local tax extensions. During this time the WCUSD#15 Tax Rates have decreased. The WCUSD#15 Tax Rate of $4.47 is the 13th lowest out of the 18 Sangamon County School Districts. As the expenses to educate a student continue to increase, the District has continued to do more with less. The WCUSD#15 Board of Education have been very good financial stewards to the taxpayers.

SCHOOL SAFETY A TOP PRIORITY

With the world we live in today, we need to plan, practice, prepare, and educate the community and students of the importance of school security. We are very fortunate to live in communities which are great places to raise kids. For the most part, we are very sheltered from society’s ills, and crime is not something we often witness or are exposed to. Consequently, we tend to take for granted the comforts given to us by living in such quiet communities, easily forgetting the importance of being diligent in maintaining safe practices.
