A Message from our Superintendent

David Dumon

Dear Altar Valley Residents,

The governing board of the Altar Valley School District has announced that they have called a special budget override election to be held on November 4 to ask for community support of the continuation of the Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Budget Override.

Prior to calling for an election, the board thoughtfully discussed all aspects of school funding, the district budget, student achievement, competitive salary and staffing requirements, and the community's capacity for an M&O Budget Override.

The continuation of the budget override will provide funding that will be used as follows:

  • to maintain current class sizes and to attract and retain the highest quality teaching staff.
  • to continue to offer free athletic programs.
  • to maintain and improve student programs such as Art, PE and gifted and accelerated programs.
  • to continue offering full-day kindergarten.

How much money will the Maintenance and Operations Override raise?
It is estimated that the total amount of the override for fiscal year 2015-2016 will be $417,997 and the tax rate for the override will be $1.37 per $100 of assessed valuation. The estimated cost to a home owner with a full cash value of $63,670 (the average value of a home in the District) would be approximately $87.23 per year.

When will the election be held?
The election will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. The polls will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Where do I vote?
Your polling place for this election is listed on the mailing label of the information pamphlet that the district will mail to registered voters on or about October 1, 2014.

If you have questions about the proposed continuation of the Maintenance and Operations Budget Override, please contact, Dr. David Dumon, Altar Valley Superintendent.
