Newton By The Numbers
Section 298.6, Code of Iowa requires school districts to provide public access to a list of all outstanding levies by rate, amount, duration, and the applicable maximum levy limitations.
The information is to be provided at the beginning of the school year, and updated prior to certifying any levy by board approval or submitting a levy for voter approval. The information is to be posted on the district's internet website or, if the district does not maintain a website, distributed or posted throughout the district.
The Department of Management's website includes an Excel spreadsheet with the required information for all districts at this location: http://www.dom.state.ia.us/local/schools/index.html.
The spreadsheet, Outstanding Property Tax Levies and Maximum Levy Limits, is updated annually.
The Department of Education's website - http://reports.educateiowa.gov/ - includes additional information required for the annual school district financial report card specified in section 279.63, Code of Iowa.
