Geneva City School District Budget Notice
Proposed 2019–20 School Budget
The Geneva City School District Budget Vote and School Board Election will be held Tuesday, May 21 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the North Street School mini gym. Voters will also have the opportunity to weigh in on the Geneva Public Library Budget Vote and Board of Trustees Election at that time.
The Geneva City School District Board of Education has proposed a $56.59 million budget for the 2019–20 school year. The proposal includes a 3.2 percent increase to the tax levy, estimated at $20,09 million. The increase is within the district’s “2 percent” tax levy cap. According to district estimations, this will translate to a 3.2 percent increase to taxpayers.
The table provides a comparison of the three major components of the 2019–20 proposed budget. The proposed 2019–20 budget reflects the board’s continued commitment to control expenditures without sacrificing the level of services provided to students. Between Jan. 1, 2018 and Jan. 1, 2019, the Consumer Price Index increased 2.44 percent.
