Truth In Taxation

The Weber School District Board of Education will hold a Truth in Taxation hearing on Wednesday, August 2, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. in the BoardRoom at the District Office, 5320 S. Adams Ave.,Ogden. The purpose of this hearing is to consider increasing the tax rate along with providing opportunity for the public to comment on this matter.

In November 2021, voters approved a $279 million bond to build a new high school, junior high school, and elementary school in western Weber County, along with rebuilding Roosevelt Elementary in Washington Terrace. Escalating construction costs and inflation over the past two years have created some financial challenges in completing the rebuild of Roosevelt. The Weber School Board is considering other options to ensure this project is completed as promised under the 2021 bond.

The Board recently created a Municipal Building Authority which will enable the district to issue revenue bonds for capital projects. This is common practice utilized by municipalities, school districts and other government agencies.

During the Truth in Taxation hearing, the board will position itself to issue a revenue bond for $52 million to complete the Roosevelt rebuild project. The revenue bond will be funded by raising the Capital Outlay Levy; however, the board will also be lowering the Debt Service Levy to offset the tax increase. These adjustments are predicted to have a zero tax impact to taxpayers.

As outlined during the 2021 bond campaign, the board will also be considering making a scheduled adjustment to the local tax rate. This adjustment will go to fund the ongoing expenses associated with operating the three new schools. These expenses include utilities as well essential personnel such as a principal, head secretary, custodian, media specialist, school resource officer, and other non-teacher positions. There will be no increase in costs associated with the rebuild of Roosevelt Elementary since the school already exists with supporting faculty and staff.

The board will also consider making a one time adjustment to the Judgment Levy to offset the amount of $453,436 that was awarded to PacifiCorp and CenturyLink after they appealed their assessed property values to the State Tax Commission. This judgment affects tax revenues collected by the state dating back to 2018. 

Members of the public wishing to attend the hearing can sign-up online. Public comments will be limited to three minutes per person.

PowerSchool Status

9/8/2023
System reboot scheduled for 6pm tonight. Hoping this fixes issue with attendance and general change logging.

8/10/2023
11:15am - Schools should continue enrolling students. Enrollment issue has been confirmed to be resolved.

8/9/2023
2:30pm - The issue that was identified earlier has been resolved.  New students can now be enrolled. Testing to make sure everything is fixed before letting schools know. Anticipate 8/10/2023 before noon to let schools know to start enrolling students again.

10:30am - An issue has been identified enrolling students and entering contact information. We have a PowerSchool engineer working on this and will get an update out when we know more.  ETA for a fix is by the end of today.  The issue is that when a new student is enrolled that student can get the same ID as another student in the system. The problem with that is then you can't access the new student but only the original student with the same ID. Student enrollments done via the web by parents are fine.  Those enrollments go into the Pre-Enrollment holding area to be approved.  When attempting to approve those new students the system will indicate that there is a duplicate error.  So, the issue is with office staff entering new students into PowerSchool. There is also an issue entering new contacts for students. Still looking into this one; it's likely related to the new student issue above.

8/8/2023
Monday 8/7/2023 around 2pm a problem was discovered with enrollment data in PowerSchool (basically all enrollments were deleted and could not be recovered). It was determined that a data restore was the best option. So, around 5pm PowerSchool data was restored to what it was at 2pm. This means that all changes in the system for that ~3 hour period (8/7/2023 2pm to 5pm) were discarded and need be re-entered into the system.
