Shall the Governing Board of Sunnyside Unified School District No. 12 of Pima County, Arizona (the “School District”), adopt a Maintenance and Operations Fund budgets, which allow the School District to exceed the applicable revenue control limit specified by law in the amount of not more than twelve percent (12%) per fiscal year for fiscal year 2014-2015 and the next subsequent six (6) fiscal years thereafter? The 2014-2015 proposed budget of the School District will exceed the alternate proposed budget of the school district by approximately $9,274,971. The proposed increase in future years will be based on a percentage of the School District’s revenue control limit as provided in Section 15-481(P), Arizona Revised Statutes, as amended, for this purpose.
Any budget increase continuation authorized by this election shall be entirely funded by a levy of taxes on the taxable property within this school district for the year for which adopted and for six subsequent years, shall not be realized from monies furnished by the state and shall not be subject to the limitation on taxes specified in Article IX, Section 18, Constitution of Arizona. Based on the current assessed valuation used for secondary property taxes purposes, to fund the proposed continuation of the increase in the school district’s budget would require an estimated continuation of a tax rate of $2.20 dollars per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation used for secondary property tax purposes and is in addition to the school district’s tax rate that will be levied to fund the school district’s revenue control limited allowed by law.
