November 2016 - BVSD Ballot Question 3A 

Operational Levy Information 

Recently approved state law authorizes a school district to place a question on the ballot for an additional mill levy for the purpose of funding capital construction, new technology, upgrading existing technology, and maintenance needs of a district.

On August 23, 2016, the BVSD Board of Education approved Resolution 16-28B, authorizing Ballot Measure 3A on the November 8, 2016, election ballot requesting district voter approval to impose an operational mill levy.

A proposed operational levy will provide resources to fund present programs, expand instructional services to address student needs and produce a funding stream for operational expenses. An operational levy would fund a portion of the district’s current $33.4 million ongoing maintenance, custodial, security, and technology expenditures. It would also allow the district to invest in ongoing preventive maintenance and repairs to extend facility life. Any funds freed up by the additional resources could be used to augment current operational services, and maintain and enhance district instructional programs and services.

The estimated impact on local residential taxpayers will be: 

Year 1 – $10 Million (Approximately 1.7 mills

  • Under $14/yr per $100K of actual value
  • Under $70/yr per $500K of actual value

Year 4 – Maximum of 4 Mills (~$26M in 2020 assuming moderate assessed value growth)

  • Approximately $32/yr per $100K of actual value
  • Approximately $160/yr per $500K of actual value
