Actually there are three levels 1, 2, and 3 percent under the state property caps. In the law is states that if you have an acre or less and a single dwelling and an attached garage, you are likely in the 1 percent factor. If you have other improvements, and garage separate you could be taxed at a 2 or 3 percent rate.

Also in Washington Township your tax went up from 2.41 to 2.73. Part of the Homestead Credit is now gone due to the tax cap so that plays into the percentage of increase. The school system in Avon wants another .175 for seven years in the referendum. Which would move all taxpayers to almosta 3.0 tax rate. All this in spite of a 12 million surplus that could be used <the majority> for the GF for salaries and benefits for teachers which is the stated purpose of the referendum This would bring in an extra 3.4 million on top of the surplus each year for the next 7 years. Now we know that projected revenue increases from the state are at 650 million over a two year period of which 500 million according to Mitch are allegedly going back to schools due to the caps.

So a windfall is possible. Why not use the surplus for two years, see if the Governor does come through, if not, then go back to the public and ask for a referendum. It takes a lot of gall to ask the public for a tax increase when you are sitting on a 12 million surplus. It is also embarrassing to tell your patrons you did not plan well knowing that in 2009 and 10 you were going to have an alleged shortfall of monies which apparently you don't have with the surplus as large as it is. You can't have that kind of a surplus and plead poverty, losing teachers, and loss of quality teaching, and higher class sizes but have that large of a surplus. Can you?

I made my way to the government building in Danville, today. I had two purposes to accomplish while I was there.

First, I paid me property tax. Yes, it went up from last year because Avon opened 3 buildings.

Second, I voted in support of the referendum. Many issues came into play while trying to decide on how I would vote.
~ I read most of the blogs and I spent hours on both websites. I also viewed the school budget. If we added up all the suggestions brought forth in this blog, anti school website, and issues I heard in conversations; the schools would still need this referendum.

~ The 15 mill. intrigued me. After looking at the budget; I realized that this was a snapshot taken after revenues had been paid to the school from the state. One would need to look deeper to realize this. My husband and I are paid on the 15th. We have a lot of money that day...not a week later.

~ I read the article regarding the Kokomo School Corporation. This is a disaster for this community. I am grateful to the board for giving me, and you, a chance for our voices to be heard. They could have rif'ed, but instead choose to let us decide.

This is truly a fork in the road for Avon; I hope patrons choose wisely.

Actually if you would have taken a trip to the auditors office you would have found that our school system has 10 million of the 12 million left. According to Chuck Nemeth, the auditor for the state, that money can all or part be transferred into the GF up until June 30 without having to be paid back by the schools.
If you would have checked with Cinda Cattau, auditor for Hendricks or Sue Van Damme you would have found that the year before the schools received 1.69 of 3.50 of the corporate tax. This year it went up to 2.02 or .32 over last year. On top of that they still want another .175 for seven years or a total over that time of 23.8 million.

Some questions, according to Hendricks County Auditor, the 1 percent groups average increase was 19.8 percent. One well known store on Rockville that is in the 3 percent group saw it's taxes go up to almost a million for the year. That is just 1 business in Avon. How much did the Targets, Meijers, and other 3 percent businesses go up? This is before the .175 referendum if it passes.

Now two questions. Do you honestly think the schools are going to pay teachers salaries and benefits of 23.8 million increase over the next seven years? They did say that is what the referendum would be used for, teachers salaries and benefits.

Two, and even more important, if they use that money for the referendum for other things besides what it is designated for, what are you and those who will vote for it do about it?

My family received an email today from the principal and a teacher where my daughter goes to school asking us to vote for. They used our email in an open email to numerous people. Our email is to be used for class updates, school information in her school, updates on athletic events but is not to be used for politics and our email is not for public disclosure. It ia a violation of our privacy and disclosing personal information without our permission.

Is that the common sense you expect from school leadership and our teachers? Is our email to be used for political dispersing of information without or permission to people we don't even know? Our school system spent almost 17 thousand on the big brochure that came home to parents. For a cash strapped community that to me is a terrible waste of our dollars. Just like offering a 1.00 health plan to the board at taxpayers expense.
Do you know that teachers at AMSN where told that the last forty teachers hired would be the first 40 fired if the referendum failed?
Did you think about all of this or at least what you should have known, before you pushed the yes button?

My family have done our homework, We contacted the SBOA, the auditor of Hendricks the assistant auditor, and will vote no. The school has money. It just wants more more more. Time to get a new superintendent and board. 2012 is the next election

Interesting... Chuck Nemeth called me on Friday (returned my call) and he didn't mention a June 30 "miracle deadline" that would allow ACSC to bypass the established rules regarding repayment of interfund transfers. Looks like I'll have another conversation with him on Monday.

How many times has a governmental body promised a "temporary tax" only later to make it permanent? Sorry, for me it comes down to trust and fiscal responsibility. On the trust issue, I would simply say that this School Corp has yet to earn my trust. If the financial situation was as dire as Dr. Ogle leads us to believe, why did the teachers I spoke with tell me they were voting no? The common thread with all of their responses was the frivolous spending. When times were good, the money was plentiful. Now that the well has dried up, the Administration sees fit to ask for a new well. Sort of sounds like Washington DC to me. Just like DC, the Avon School administration has a spending problem, NOT a revenue problem.

In closing, I hope you all have found my discourses here civil - I strongly believe that intelligent and educated adults can discuss things in a rational manner. I respect those who feel the need to support the referendum. We agree to disagree. However, I wll leave with one more thought - has this referendum woken the proverbial "sleeping giant" that is the vovting populace? I hope so. School board change in 2012? Heck, I am thinking about running.

I don't ever recall hearing that Avon Schools are "broke." They won't even be "broke" if the referendum doesn't pass. They will simply need to make more drastic cuts to operate with the money they DO have. Those cuts WILL include teachers and staff. That's not a threat. That's mathematics. That's reality.
<quoted text>
I'm calling your bluff. If they were broke, you'd simply for a campaign to insist that the schools are broke because they mismanaged the money. In your mind, the School Board is the root of all evil and will never pass your sniff test. Period.
<quoted text>
There is no way you can make that statement unless you personally have final approval on the budget. You have ZERO basis for making a claim like that. It's unfounded and irresponsible. Layoffs are an economic reality if the referendum does not pass.
<quoted text>
First of all, its a proposal, NOT policy. Second, the amount distributed to schools would equate to a few hundred thousand dollars to Avon, which would still make the referendum necessary. It would certainly help, but it would not eliminate the need altogether.
<quoted text>
That is 100% fine. BUT, the referendum vote will NOT have an impact on the Superintendent or the School Board. Carry out your vendetta in the 2012 School Board election, but trying to convince people to vote "no" because somehow that will affect the Superintendent or the School Board is deceptive or ignorant. Regardless, a NO vote leaves the same people in power just the same as a YES vote. The difference? You punish students and teachers instead of the very people you hope to get rid of, though I doubt you'll even think twice before pulling the lever.
<quoted text>
You don't have to demand it, it already exists. And, the surplus you reference isn't a surplus, it's a cash balance TOTAL in all ACSC funds (including transportation, capital projects, debt services and school bus replacement) on June 30, 2010. That's because the state fiscal year ends June 30, while the ACSC fiscal year ends December 31.
Quick example to illustrate this: Imagine you have a several bills due on the 15th of the upcoming month totaling $4,500. You get paid $2,500 every two weeks and get paid twice before your bills are due. If I look at your account balance on the 13th, I will see a $5,000 surplus - by your definition. That is a false statement since in two days all but $500 of your money will be gone.
<quoted text>
It only becomes difficult if you think your voting for or against something you're not. No one is arguing that the taxes would go up. It's nominal, but no one is diminishing the fact that it has some impact.$6-$35/month isn't nothing. It's real money. It may even be a legitimate sacrifice for some people. But, I believe that if you really know what you are voting for (teachers, programs, student learning,etc.) it's worth it.
If you know they have a surplus from public records why do they want more? Monies can be transfered Ehhh?

The problem is the school system cutting the new teachers, who are more qualified to teach minorities and students of this generation, because of tenure. New teachers are being cut because of Avon citizens not wanting to pay more taxes for their children. The grades are poor because older teachers care less about their students education because they can't get fired. Voting no will only fire many of the great teachers in the school system, it won't lower the pay of any high up officials. They will still be paid the same amount, so don't punish the great teachers out there because of it. If you want the school to get better grades, you are going to have to vote yes so the teachers who actually care stay in the school system.
Dennis--I can guess at how much they spend on the band. Way less that the football team, who can't win anything. The parents of the band members pay about 200 a month so their child can be in band. They make the costumes for color guard and they make the changes on the band costumes. The band is the only thing making the school system anything. No sports team can say the dominate, so the band stepped up, and succeeded.

If you know they have a surplus from public records why do they want more? Monies can be transfered Ehhh?
We don't know that from public records, but this poor horse is dying even in death.

Here is an explanation that might help you understand what you think you are seeing.

From Dr. Ogle (as it appears on http://www.facebook.com/supportavonchildren ):

The following information should help people understand the complex topic of cash balance. The ACSC cash balance in the General Fund (the Fund used to support our classrooms) was $3.7 million on 12/31/2010. This represents only 7.5% of the General Fund’s annual obligations. The State recommends school corporations operate with an 8-10% cash balance in their General Fund.

Others have said ACSC has a $15 million surplus. This is information taken out of context and represents the amount of money in ALL ACSC accounts at the time the state conducted their audit, June 30, 2010. The cash balance in no way indicates a “surplus” and here’s why:

The state’s uses a July 1 to June 30 fiscal calendar. ACSC operates on a Jan 1 to December 31 fiscal calendar. Therefore, the cash balance that appears in June can be (or is) spent for expenses the district must pay between July and December. Again, that cash balance represents ALL money, not just operating fund money. Regardless, because of the overlapping fiscal calendars (State and ACSC), that $15 million only represents the total money in all accounts in June of 2010.

With regards to fund transfers, the State Board of Accounts rules provide this clarification. While it is technically accurate that funds “can” be transferred between accounts, there is much more to it that simply clicking a button. It involves legal proceedings, hearings, etc. Additionally, there are very strict rules in place to regulate this type of activity. Also, monies moved from one account to another (known as an interfund transfer, must be paid back to the original account within one year.) So, while technically accurate to say money can be transferred, it is far from being as easy as it sounds.

Wrong again Carlos If you had talked to Chuck Nemeth you would know that funds can be transferred before June 30 of this year WITHOUT having to pay them back. Try again Carlos and get your facts straight. If you really did talk to Nemeth which I seriously doubt you would asked the important questions and got the answers I did. I talked to him by phone last Friday and he imparted this information. No dead horses just facts which seem to illude both you and Dr Ogle but then our board and the good Dr. have serious issues with facts as have Brinkman and DeWeese for over a decade, for Buckley and Woodward for 7 years and Englehardt for 4. Ogle is just looking for money to spend and there is no way to check to see if he spends it where he is supposed to. You might start with cutting Ogles bloated salary of 269K a year to begin with and those of his office assistant supers which are gorged at taxpayers expense NO NEW TAXES VOTE NO TODAY.

I am a junior at Avon High School with a straight A average who scored a 2260 on her SAT. I have also taken 2 Advanced Placement exams (as a sophomore) and have passed both of them, earning scores that signify that I am "well qualified" in one and "extremely well qualified" in the other to test out of the introductory level courses in these subjects. Every teacher I have had in my 3 years at Avon High School and my 5 years at other Avon Schools has worked extremely hard to give me a quality education, and none of them deserve to be laid off. I have teachers that hold 3 hours study sessions on Sunday nights before we take exams to make sure their students have a firm grip on the topic and teachers that come in early and stay late every day (and who are always available by email) in case I have questions. If students are failing, it is by no means the fault of their teachers! As a high school student, I know that the students who are failing come to class, and don't do much of anything else, even though they have been given fantastic opportunities by which to learn at AHS. I don't know where you are getting your statistics (because most of the people that I know are scoring far above that "average" of 1019 on their SATs), but thanks to these dedicated and hardworking teachers, every student has the priviledge to expand their learning far beyond what they could at many other schools, and I sincerely hope that Avon Schools will be able to keep these teachers and save the educational standard.

My hat goes off to you and your achievements and I am sure from what you have told me that you will succeed and you are to be congratulated for your success. However, if Avon's average is only 1018 on the SAT and you do have cram courses to help you take it, would you not concede in your wisdeom that you are probably the exception and not the rule? To have a 1018 average with your top score in the mix, it means a large number of seniors are well below the state average for Avon's SAT average to only be 1018.
There are some very high quality educators in Avon from 1st through high school. My kids went through

However there are or have to be some very poor students in the school to have 40 percent of the students fail their math and language assessments, to average 1018, have failed to make 4 star at the high school for seven of the last nine years, and have been on state academic watch at the high school 4 years in a row when the rest of the schools in Avon have been exemplary or commendable. I do not in any way degrade your achievements. I APPLAUD YOU and your accomplishments. It has to be through simple logic that you have a number of teachers who are incapable, a number of students who are, or both. Since half of your students graduate with honors diplomas, 92 percent of them have core 40 diplomas, and almost a 1/3 to 1/2 have 3.0 or better something is not right, would you not agree. If your students are achieving as such a high rate above, but are on academic watch, can not make 4 star, have a 40 percent failure rate in language and math assessments, and a 1018 composite but have all these grade achievements, something is terribly wrong.

Again congratulations to you, your SAT composites, and your high AP testing achievements. The key is find out why you have all of these honor students, 3.0 students but such poor achievement and are on academic watch. Good luck in college and best wishes to you and those who have helped you achieve. DIH

Fact:Only 24 percent of the graduates who took AP tests could pass them. Very low
Dennis in Hendricks: I am sorry to say YOU are misinterpreting SOME of the information that is stated very clearly in the link you posted. If you were to READ the information provided by the IDOE, you would see that the percentage that you referenced for the AP test is calculated by dividing "the number of students passing an AP test" by "the total student population" NOT "the total number of students taking an AP exam." I am quite certain that not every student enrolled at AHS is enrolled in an AP course and/or elects to take the assessment. On this point you are wrong.

Should you take the time to compare the results of AHS to the state average, you would see that the results of AHS are SIGNIFICANTLY above the state average in MOST areas. Remember that teachers are required to provide instruction surrounding the Indiana State Academic Standards. Should you investigate the number of standards for grades K-12 you would see what educational researchers have been saying for years. In order to teach all of these to mastery, we would need to extend our school system to K-24. Thankfully, Indiana is part of the movement toward the Common Core State Standards which focus on depth of knowledge in each grade level rather than breadth in an attempt to "cover" what might be tested. This should help improving education overall. I am sure that the majority of the schools of Avon will continue to surpass the norm regardless of the measurement instrument.

Finally, you have brought up a few valid points that there is a need to reevaluate the pay and compensation of the administrators in the corporation. I personally find it sickening that teachers are continuously asked to give of their own time and money for professional development and curriculum development while it appears that many administrators recieve an enormous amount of perks. I doubt that any administrator is asked to pay for registration and transportation to professional conferences, and yet many teachers must do this in order to attend workshops and conferences that would have a direct impact upon student learning. Unfortunately, the failure of the referendum will have absolutely no impact on the compensation of any of the administrators, and teachers certainly won't benefit. Instead, as promised by the administration, 40-45 teachers will lose their positions. Because of state law that is in effect until July 1, teachers will be cut based on seniority and licensing. AGAIN, this will most likely fail to address the majority of objections that you presented against the passing of the referendum.
Perhaps a better fight to wage would have been to attempt to rectify the wrongs that have been put inplace through the elected school board. Electing NEW members would actually impact the issues that need correcting. In the meantime, the teachers and students of Avon are the ones who are really going to bare the burden of the shortfall as STUDENT LEARNING WILL BE THE ONLY THING IMPACTED BY THE FAILURE OF THE REFERENDUM.

Ross, I'm sorry you had to go through that. I'm NOT surprised. Wish we had switched to Tri West 5 years ago ! Have one more year here at ACSC. I've heard too many parents w same perceptions you hold. It's really too bad because there are many very good people working in ACSC....just the Administration holding them back. Power and Greed seem to prevail here.
