Levy Financial Outlook

October Financial Overview

In October 2022, Superintendent Larry Hook provided an overview of the current financial situation facing Forest Hills School District. The detailed presentation discussed the challenges, relevant historical information and an overview of imminent and significant costs the district is currently facing. Superintendent Hook estimates that the district is currently facing $5-$5.5 million in imminent repairs and maintenance on critical facilities/equipment. The proposed levy would not provide enough funding to address all of the current needs, but it will allow FHSD to begin chipping away at the most critical projects and create a plan to meet additional needs over time.
