We may be a small district, but there is always a lot happening here at Willcox Unified. Check here for news and events going on in our schools. We’ll update it regularly so you always have the most current information possible.
Notice and Call of Special Election
A special election has been called by, and will be held in, Willcox Unified School District No. 13 of Cochise County, Arizona (the "District"), on November 7, 2017 ("Election Day"). The purpose of the election is to permit the qualified electors of the District to vote on authorizing the District to adopt a General Maintenance and Operation Budget that includes an amount of up to 10% in excess of the revenue control limit for the 2018-2109 fiscal year and for six subsequent years (subject to certain reductions provided by statute in years six and seven). The District's current budget override has already reduced by one-third and will reduce by another one-third in fiscal year 2018-2019 if the override is not approved. The proposed budget will exceed the 2018-2019 alternate budget by approximately $450,000 and the District’s secondary tax rate required to fund this amount is estimated to be $0.69 per one hundred dollars of net assessed valuation for secondary property tax purposes. The full budget override amount is estimated to be $675,000 and would be funded by an estimated $1.04 tax rate per one hundred dollars of net assessed valuation. In future years, the amount of the increase will be as provided by law.
