Financial Update Fiscal Year 2023-2024

School finance isn't typically at the top of everyone's mind with so many other issues and busy schedules competing for your attention. Rest assured that Marysville Schools is constantly looking for ways to offer a top notch education to our students while keeping a close eye on the budget. You may not be aware that the average per pupil cost to educate a Marysville student is $12,775, which is well below the state average of $14,686. At the same time, our total revenue per pupil is $12,365, well below the state average of $16,457. When you consider these facts along with a performance index that is among the top 20% of all schools in Ohio, Marysville Schools truly is doing more with less. Even with annual enrollment growing by over 100 students per year on average and record inflation, we have been able to maintain our high level of service without additional tax revenue. We were fortunate this year to receive a significant increase in State funding that allowed the district to push the next levy ask back to November 2024.   

The two main sources of our operating revenue are local and state funding. Our local funding comes from tax revenues, as provided through school district levies. The last new money levy the district passed was in 2008 so we have stretched that last levy for 15 years. The main reason we don't see significant growth in our local revenue is due to a law known as House Bill 920. This law basically locks down revenue from school levies so that schools will not receive more income when property values rise, meaning that a local school levy produces a fixed number of dollars while costs tend to rise with growth and inflation over time. This also protects taxpayers from unvoted tax increases. The main source of our state funds is the state foundation funding formula, otherwise known as per pupil funding. As you've likely heard me say in the past, the state views Marysville as a relatively wealthy community as compared across the state so that the funding formula is not favorable for funding increases to the district. While we did receive a large increase this year, those local wealth factors will likely minimize future increases. On top of that, the Tangible Personal Property Tax reimbursement funding provided by the state began phasing out in 2016, decreasing by $500k-$600k annually. This funding will be completely gone next year which equates to a loss of $5.6 million and is the equivalent of having a 5 mill levy wiped off our books.

Permanent Improvement Forecast helps protect community investment in our schools

Over the years, our community has invested a lot of money building our schools so that our students will have quality learning facilities. It is our job to ensure that investment is protected and maintained for years to come. One of the ways we are doing that is with the Permanent Improvement Forecast.

The Permanent Improvement (PI) Fund is typically used for items or projects that are more long term in nature, expenses such as school buses, asphalt, technology, building upkeep, and maintenance/custodial equipment to name a few. Through the creation of the PI Forecast, we have a long term planning tool that ensure safe and well maintained facilities and equipment. The PI Forecast makes sure we get the most out of our PI tax dollars and helps the school district stay off the ballot for facilities funding as long as possible.

The long term planning involved with the forecast has allowed us to accomplish some major projects that were long overdue. One example you are surely aware of is the stadium renovation project at the high school as well as the ECHS/stadium parking lot project. We were also able to build a football field and track at Bunsold Middle School which has been needed for a long time. For projects such as these that have such a large impact on our community, you'll be happy to know that the district received approximately $1.3 million in donations to complete the stadium renovations. There are many other projects completed each year that aren't accompanied by the excitement of a new stadium, but nevertheless these projects allow Marysville Schools to offer top notch educational services to our community and provide safe and well maintained facilities for our students.

With all of the pressures of the daily operations of a school district, it can be easy to lose the long term perspective that some of these facility projects require. Rest assured that we value the community’s investment and the long term preservation of our facilities. The Permanent Improvement Forecast is one way we ensure this always remains a top priority.
