View the upcoming School District bond issue 60

On your November 8 election ballot you will find issue 60, the proposed bond issue for Valley View Local School District.  Please see below for wording of the actual bond issue 60.


A majority affirmative vote is necessary for passage.

60 Shall bonds be issued by the Valley View Local School District to pay the local share of school construction under the State of Ohio Classroom Facilities Assistance Program; furnishing and equipping the same; improving the sites thereof; and acquiring land and interests in land as necessary, in the principal amount of $27,455,000 to be repaid annually over a maximum period of 38 years, and an annual levy of property taxes to be made outside the ten-mill limitation, estimated by the county auditor to average over the repayment period of the bond issue 5.48 mills for each one dollar of tax valuation, which amounts to $0.548 for each one hundred dollars of tax valuation, commencing in 2016, first due in calendar year 2017, to pay the annual debt charges on the bonds, and to pay debt charges on any notes issued in anticipation of those bonds

Calculation of Taxes


Property in Ohio is appraised by the County Auditor.  Once the appraised value is determined, the taxable value can be calculated by multiplying the appraised value by 35%.

For  Example:

A property that is appraised at $100,000 will be taxed on 35% of $100,000.  Thirty-Five percent of $100,000 is $35,000 so the taxable value of a property valued at $100,000 is $35,000.

In Ohio 1 mill equals 1/1000 of a dollar or 0.001.  Valley View’s request is for 5.48 mills calculated for taxes as 5.48/1000=0.00548.

Using the same example a property appraised at $100,000, has a taxable value of $35,000 and will pay .00548 times $35,000 which is $191.80 per year, or $15.98 per month as a result of this tax request.

Appraised value may vary due to CAUV values and Homestead Exemption.  More detail on those may be found at the following link:

Build the Future

Valley View Local Schools MUST make major investments in our facilities in the next five years.  The State has a one-year offer to pay 53 percent of the cost of three new facilities, provided we pass our local share and address our facility needs district wide.

Valley View sixth graders traveled to Miami University, Middletown

Valley View sixth graders traveled to Miami University, Middletown on Oct. 7 to see Percussion Group Cincinnati.

They are a trio of world-class percussionists doing their highly entertaining and informative program about the development of percussion instruments around the world. They shared information about different countries and their instruments and style of music. They also showed how to make music with ordinary objects, for example; flower pots, trash cans, brake drums, wheel rims and a vocal piece. The students will be doing something similar to this towards the end of the school year. The students seemed to enjoy the show and had many things to talk about when we returned to class.
