On Tuesday, approximately one-third of Minnesota school districts will be holding a referendum for a new operating levy. While some districts will be asking to renew expiring levies, many are seeking increased funding. The most recent K-12 education budget passed by the Minnesota Legislature increased state funding to school districts by about $700 million, including a $50 increase to the per-pupil formula.
The Freedom Foundation of Minnesota has compiled information on the various referenda from school districts across the state. The data includes enrollment trends, district revenue, levy facts and figures, and the actual ballot language voters will see on November 8.
