Tax Levy
Increasing 5.21%. Five factors contribute to this change: (1) 'three-year rolling average' enrollment growth, (2) modest expenditure increases, (3) no revenue limit authority change, (4) the State aid assumption, and (5) increased debt service resulting from the successful 2016 referendum.

State Equalization Aid
Increasing 6%. A "worst case" scenario would by a 15% loss, which has not materialized the past several years. A 6% increase is realistic and yet conservative. Increasing aid helps reduce the increase in the local property tax levy.

Mill Rate
Increasing 2.65%. An increase of 2.5% was used to estimate OASD's equalized tax base. OASD's tax base has grown each of the past three years at 5.7%, 3.0%, and 3.1% which is growth above the State average. Tax base growth helps to offset the increased tax levy.

Student Enrollment Growth
Increasing FTE count .9%. This is a conservative enrollment estimate that assumes an increase of 16 students (5,492 to 5,541). The 'three-year rolling-average' increases by 67 students.

Moody's Financial Bond Rating

Moody’s Investors Service has assigned an Aa2 rating to Oconomowoc Area School District,
WI’s $19.9 million General Obligation School Building and Improvement Bonds, Series 2018. Concurrently,
Moody’s maintains the Aa2 rating on the district’s outstanding general obligation unlimited
tax (GOULT) debt. Post-sale, the district will have $93.6 million of GOULT debt outstanding.
The Aa2 rating reflects the district’s sizeable tax base supported by above average income
levels and located within commuting distance of Milwaukee (Aa3 stable). The rating also
reflects the district's solid financial position, as well as its modest exposure to unfunded pension liabilities, and above average debt burden following issuance of voter approved debt.
