"GOOD" Awards presented to Sixth Graders

For the 21st consecutive year, the Germantown Lions Club presented "Good citizen" awards to twenty sixth graders at a special assembly on Thursday, Feb.9 in the Valley View Intermediate School auditorium. The assembly was attended by the entire sixth grade class as well as Parents and Family members.  The Germantown Lions are charter members in presenting these "GOOD" awards.  Ron Derry, a former teacher and coach from Northwest Ohio became blind due to complications of diabetes.  He still wanted to do positive things for students even though his teaching and coaching were no longer possible.  He had to decide, will I go on or will I be defeated by blindness.  The acronym GOOD stands for Going On Or Defeated.  The "GOOD" awards are given to students who exemplify good citizenship traits on a daily basis.  The Germantown Lions are proud to participate in this worthwhile project.

Drinking Fountains in the District tested

Valley View Schools Water Test Come Back Clean

In June 2016 the Ohio General Assembly passed legislation that created a grant program-Lead Plumbing Fixture Replacement Assistance Grant.  The intent of the grant is to reimburse schools for the testing of water samples, and the replacement of plumbing fixtures.

In September Valley View Local Schools applied and was approved for the grant.  At this time we also received notification that Halsey Taylor drinking fountains has lead lined tanks and these were the same models that are in the high school.  We at this time made the decision to shut off the fountains and bring in other water coolers for students until the test could be completed.

In October, Dayton Environmental conducted all lead water samples District wide.  The report showed we have one water fountain at the high school above legal limits and this water fountain will stay turned off and the bottled water coolers have been removed.

The decision we made were to protect the safety and well being of our students and staff.

Issue 60, an Important Decision for the future of our district

In the past several weeks, as well as up to election day, we will be providing information to assist you in making an informed decision regarding Issue 60. You will find issue 60 on your November 8 election ballot. This is the proposed bond issue for Valley View Local School District.  

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.

 

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.

60 PROPOSED BOND ISSUE VALLEY VIEW LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT

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:
