AREA, ASSESSED VALUATION, AND HIGH SCHOOL DISTANCE

The names and numbers of each county in which existing NDE records show the district has valuation have been prepopulated from the prior year.  If the district has valuation in a county that was not prepopulated, contact the Department.

If this district is geographically situated in more than one county, each county's portion of the total valuation and area in square miles must be reported separately.
ASSESSED VALUATION

Report the district's final assessed valuation that was used in setting or certifying the school district's general fund levy for the current year by county by clicking on the EDIT button.  Enter the assessed valuation and click the UPDATE button to update the system.


HIGH SCHOOL DISTANCE

The high school distance has been prepopulated with information provided in the prior year.  If there has been a change to the high school distance, click on the EDIT button and enter to the nearest tenth of a mile, the distance between the high school attendance center and the next closest high school attendance center on paved roads.  Once the high school distance has been entered, click on the UPDATE button to update the system.  For merged or new districts, High School Distance will be 0.  Click on the EDIT button to enter High School Distance, then the UPDATE button to update the system. 
AREA IN SQUARE MILES (nearest tenth)

The area within each county has been prepopulated based on information provided in the prior year.  If the district's area has changed due to any type of boundary change, please indicate the current area in square miles to the nearest tenth within each county by clicking on the EDIT button.  Once the edit has been made, click the UPDATE button to update the system.
