33-906B. VALUE INDEX CALCULATION. The state department of education shall establish a value index for each school district, based on each school district’s market value per support unit for equalization purposes, the average annual seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate in the county in which a plurality of the school district’s market value for assessment purposes of taxable property is located and the per capita income in the county in which a plurality of the school district’s market value for assessment purposes is located. The value index for each school district shall be calculated as the sum of the following three (3) components:
(1) The state department of education shall annually calculate each school district’s market value per support unit, based on the market values that would be used to calculate a bond levy, and the statewide average. The first portion of the value index shall be calculated by dividing the school district’s figure by the statewide average figure and dividing the result of this calculation by two (2).
(2) The second portion of the value index shall be calculated by dividing the statewide unemployment rate by the unemployment rate in the county in which a plurality of the school district’s market value for assessment purposes of taxable property is located, and dividing the result of this calculation by four (4). For the purposes of this subsection, the statewide unemployment rate and county unemployment rates shall be based on the most recent average annual seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate data reported by the United States department of labor, for which there is a complete calendar year of data.
(3) The third portion of the value index shall be calculated by dividing the county per capita income in the county in which a plurality of the school district’s market value for assessment purposes of taxable property is located by the statewide per capita income, and dividing the result of this calculation by four (4). For the purposes of this subsection, the statewide per capita income and county per capita income shall be based on the most recent data reported by the United States department of commerce, for which there is a complete calendar year of data.
If a bond is passed by a subdistrict created pursuant to section 33-351, Idaho Code, the index used shall be that of the school district. For subdistricts created as a result of consolidation, for the purposes of retiring prior bonded indebtedness, pursuant to section 33-311, Idaho Code, the subdistrict shall retain the value index factor calculated in subsection (1) of this section, as such factor was calculated in the subdistrict’s last fiscal year as a separate school district. The remaining components of the subdistrict’s value index calculation shall be that of the consolidated school district, as calculated each year.
