October 24th, 2016 Presentation to the Defiance City Schools Board of Education
On October 24, 2016 the Defiance Board of Education approved the Five Year Forecast for the District. The file above is the presentation that was given at the Board Meeting. If you have any question regarding this presentation please contact Cheryl Swisher, Treasurer at 419-782-9452.
October Forecast
The first forecast is the forecast approved to be submitted to the Ohio Department of Education by the Defiance Board of Education. This forecast along with the notes (Titled Defiance-043869) explain the past 3 years historical spending patterns as well as the next 5 years forecasted spending. Since the FY 2017 Emergency Levy has not been passed by voters, the amounts collected by that levy are moved to line 11.02 Property Tax renewal and subtracted from line 1.01 Real Estate, line 1.02 Public Utility Personal Property and Line 1.05 Property tax allocation. That is why line 6.01 shows the District deficit spending in fiscal years 2019-2021.

The second forecast (lines highlighted in Pink) shows the renewal collection in line 1.01, line 1.02 and Line 1.05. It shows the amount of the renewal levy below but includes the numbers in the top of the forecast. If the levy passes, the District will not be deficit spending in any of the 5 forecasted years. If the Levy does not pass, the District will lose revenue of $5,695,875 over the course of 4 years (FY 2018-FY2021).

When looking at either forecast, please print and look at the notes (Defiance-043869) to be able to follow why changes to revenue and expenses occur and what assumptions are being made in the forecast.

The forecast and notes will be available on the Ohio Department of Education website after 10-31-2016.
