B-2 = $8.5 million
B-2 Heavily Impacted Aid brings $8.5 million in federal tax dollars back to our local community every single year.
B-2 benefits all students - both military and civilian.
95.13% vs. 95%
To be eligible for B-2, a school district has to meet three criteria. Waynesville R-VI readily meets the first two, but barely qualifies for the third -- meeting the federal government's "reasonable" local tax levy requirement. The U.S. Department of Education defines "reasonable" as having a local tax levy that is within 95% of a comparable group of school districts. Using all qualifiers possible, Waynesville R-VI is at 95.13%. A 10-cent tax levy increase would keep the district eligible for B-2. Calculate my 10-cent tax levy increase.
Return on investment
For every $1 in new local tax revenue through the 10-cent tax levy increase, $22 in Federal B-2 Heavily Impacted Aid would be preserved.
Waynesville R-VI's total tax levy is among the lowest in the state because the district has NO bond debt!
Per pupil expenditure is below state average
The Waynesville R-VI School District's per pupil expenditure is $1,432 less than the state average per pupil expenditure. The state's calculation of per pupil expenditure does not include capital projects, such as buildings.
