Impact Fees

How does the district use land cash and impact fees?Land cash contributions provide either land for school sites or a cash equivalency that can be used for the acquisition and improvement of school sites. The magnitude of the land cash contribution and its collection are determined by municipal ordinances. State law was recently changed to allow money from this source to be used for construction as well.

Capital Impact FeeThis fee has been determined through the Dahlstrom method, an empirical approach which the municipalities have reached a consensus to support. This fee can be used to pay for the construction of schools, additions and remodeling needed for growth. It is obtained from new homes and is based on a home's value and the number of bedrooms the home contains. The fee tables have floor and ceiling values. The fees are calculated separately for each detached, attached and multi-family housing unit.

Specific uses of these fees in KanelandKaneland has received $7,830,382 in land cash and impact fees over the last ten years and has expended this money for the following purposes:Purchase of a school site in Maple ParkPurchase of a school site at the Harter Rd. and Route 47Addition to John Shields Elementary School in Sugar GroveAddition to John Stewart Elementary School in ElburnRemodeling for energy savings at KMS and KHS in Maple ParkPreliminary work by the architects and engineers for KMS and new middle schoolRemodeling of KHS 2nd floor addition
The money is held in an interest-bearing account to provide for future construction projects. All of these fees must be obtained through the municipalities. The district has no legal authority to obtain them directly from developers.

Tax Levy Presentation

Tax LevyThe amount of dollars in each operating fund a school district asks for to pay the bills for the next school year. The Board of Education must adopt a levy no later than the last Tuesday in December and certify it with the County Clerk. It is the largest, most stable and reliable source of revenue.

The 2022 tax levy will pay for programs, services, operating costs, salaries, and other expenses for the 2022-2023 school year. The tentative Tax Levy was approved by the board on October 25, 2021.
