What does a 'yes' or 'no' vote mean for the school district?
October 26, 2020
Bemidji residents will have the chance to weigh in on whether or not to approve a Bemidji Area Schools operating referendum on Election Day.
The question on the ballot will be: “Shall the revocation of the existing referendum authority and the replacement with a new referendum revenue authorization proposed by the board of Independent School District No. 31 (Bemidji), Minnesota be approved?”
In other words: if approved, this measure will remove the district’s existing referendum authority of $180 per pupil and enact a new one for $460 per pupil.
