Historically Woodland Schools requests and receives levy funds at a far lower percentage than virtually all school districts in our area.
- In 2012 the levy collection of 17.5% ($3,100,000) was approximately $1.4 million below the 28% authority of $4,516,325.
- In 2013 the levy collection of 17.3% ($3,250,000) will be approximately $1.5 million below the 28% authority of $4,743,975.
- In 2014 the levy collection of 17.6% ($3,400,000) will be approximately $1.4 million below the 28% authority of $4,776,033.
It is anticipated, given the increases in funding received this year from the state that the gap will be higher in 2015 if we maintain the current rate of increase.
