Twice a year, as required by state law, Wyoming City Schools files a Five-Year Forecast with the Ohio Department of Education. I’m pleased to report that at the May 22 Wyoming City Schools Board of Education Meeting, the spring Five-Year Forecast was presented and it demonstrates the financial stability of the district. As the Treasurer of Wyoming City Schools, I’d like all of our district shareholders to know that it is of the utmost importance to the Wyoming City Schools Board of Education, administration, and staff to operate in a fiscally conservative manner while providing excellent educational opportunities for Wyoming students. The entire Five-Year Forecast, along with the accompanying Five-Year Forecast assumptions and tips for understanding a Five-Year Forecast can be found below.
Our positive projections are due in part to the fact that voters in Wyoming passed a 9.5 mill dual-purpose property tax levy on May 2. With 8 mills of the levy going to operations and 1.5 mills going to district permanent improvements, the district will be able to continue to serve our students and maintain our facilities. Thank you to the Wyoming community for continuing to support the Wyoming City School district.
We are watching how changes in the state budget may impact our projections and will provide an updated Five-Year Forecast this fall.
