Operating Millage Renewal Proposal
Updated: October 15, 2014
Download this file
OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL PROPOSAL
On the November 4th ballot, the voters of Southgate & South Allen Park in the Southgate Community School District will be asked to vote on the renewal of the District's 18 mill non-homestead operating millage.
The last time residents of this District were asked to vote on the 18 mill operating millage was 20 years ago with an additional .2 mills voted on and approved 5 years ago.
The 18 mills are assessed on business, industrial and commercial property and property that is not the owner's principal residence, such as rental homes and apartment buildings.
Under Michigan School Law, even though the 18 mills are not assessed on an individual's principal residence, voters must approve the renewal.
The 18 mills represent 10.5 percent of the District's general fund revenue - approximately $4,500,000 per year.
The ballot language states that the amount being renewed is 18.1262 mills. However, only 18 mills will be levied if the voters approve the renewal. The additional mills would be available so that the District will still be able to levy 18 mills annually if, in any year, we have to reduce the original 18 mills because the taxable value of the property in the District increased by more than the rate of inflation (Headlee Rollback).
The renewal will be for 10 years.
The State of Michigan assumes that every school district will assess the 18 mills. So, that amount is subtracted for each District's payment of the state aid foundation allowance.
If the millage renewal is rejected, the State does NOT make up the difference and the District will lose this funding. This would have a detrimental effect on the operations of the District and on the Deficit Elimination Plan. Failure to renew the millage, over the course of 10 years, is equivalent to losing $45,000,000.
This millage renewal is very important for our District and for the education of our students. We want to make sure that everyone knows that this is a renewal and that this millage does not affect the property taxes on their principal residence. There will be no change in their property tax bills because of this renewal.
Please feel free to contact the Business Office if you have any questions.

Davidson Middle School Conferences
Updated: September 30, 2014
On Thursday, October 9, 2014, Davidson Middle School will be hosting our first semester parent/teacher conferences. The afternoon conference time is scheduled from 1:00-2:30pm and the evening conference time is scheduled from 5:00-7:30pm. Teachers will conference on a first come, first serve basis. Each conference will be limited to 5 minutes. Please respect the length of this conference opportunity, as we have many families to accommodate on this day. If you feel that you need to consult with your student's teachers for an additional amount of time, please feel free to schedule this additional meeting with that individual teacher (s).
If you are able to print your child's report card from MISTAR, to bring with you to conferences, this will help expedite the process. If you are not able to print your child's report card, a copy will be available in the Davidson main office. Teachers will be located in both their classrooms and the cafeteria.
Students are encouraged to attend conferences. It is important for students to be present and take part in the planning for their success. With all conference schedules there are challenges, therefore, we ask for your patience as you may find some teachers have more conferences in progress than others. We would like to thank you for taking the time to discuss your student's progress.
I would also like to remind you that our book fair will be taking place Monday, October 6, through Friday, October 10 and they will even include open hours during Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, October 9. Students will be able to go down to the media center throughout the week during a scheduled time in their English class.
