A Message from the Treasurer

With the community’s support, the financial position of the Lakota
School District is good. Lakota’s spending is in line with revenue, and we have a carefully developed plan for the coming years that supports the mission and vision of the Lakota Schools. At the same time, I take very seriously the responsibility and trust placed in me by the Lakota Board of Education, to be a good steward of taxpayer dollars. In Lakota we get a very good return on our investment when compared to similar school districts across Ohio.

There are still challenges. The greatest of these continues to be the relative unpredictability of the state funding system, which makes any sort of long-term financial planning even more difficult. A stable school funding system in Ohio would be a great help to school leaders throughout Ohio.

The levy passed by voters in November 2013 was critical to the financial health and stability of the school district. It allowed us to preserve the programs that form the basis of Lakota’s educational offerings, and to add or restore other carefully selected services. A continuing benefit of the levy is that 2.0 mills is expressly dedicated to the “Permanent Improvement” fund, or capital expenses. This will help ensure that our 25 buildings are properly maintained, our technology strategic plan can be implemented and our building safety enhancements will occur.

I would like to express my appreciation to a great team in the Treasurer’s Office. Because of their work, we’ve earned the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for 13 years in a row. That’s an award given by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA), and the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) for our comprehensive annual financial report. The award signifies our annual report demonstrates a spirit of full disclosure about the district’s finances. 

I hope the financial information presented here is useful in understanding the financial picture of your school district. Thank you for your ongoing support!
  
Jenni L. Logan, Treasurer
