Public school finance is often viewed as a complicated process.  This is an attempt to explain the levying process in order to give you a better grasp of school finance practices.  The Williamsville School District must post a notice in today’s paper regarding the tax levy.  This is a legal notice required by the Illinois State Board of Education.  Because of its format, the levy notice is very misleading.  It is imperative that taxpayers understand that the district is not raising taxes by 18%. The levy is just requesting the school’s share of the tax dollars available in new property growth and CPI applied to existing property under the tax cap.  A tax levy is not what the district actually receives.  In reality, the tax rate applied by the school district will decline under the tax cap as the value of property increases. Here is a brief explanation of the budget and levy cycle.

Parents, Are you aware that the Junior High posts a Daily Bulletin every day?  It's simple to find.  Just go to the Junior High drop down menu.  Every day, important items are posted about things going on at school.  If your child is on a sports team, we'll post bus times, game locations, practice changes, etc.  Currently, we're reminding students about the upcoming school picture day (August 31) and soon to begin Student Council selections.  We hope you can find time during your busy day to check out the bulletin.
