Minneapolis Public Schools will be asking voters to support a $30 million referendum in November


August 8, 2018

In June, the Minneapolis Public Schools board unanimously finalized a financial ask that has the potential to help the state’s third-largest district regain some long-needed financial stability: a two-question, $30 million referendum on the November ballot.

The first question will ask Minneapolis voters to consider an $18 million increase to the existing operating levy ($1,604 per pupil), which is used to pay for everything from staff salaries and benefits to classroom supplies and special student support services. This increase would bring the district’s operating levy to to the state-allowed maximum.
