Superintendent Joshua Swanson gave a presentation during a question and answer session for community members about the coming levy in the next election on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022 at Central Middle School in Eden Prairie, Minn.

Voters in Hawley, Minn., will decide whether to grant their school district's request for a new middle school. In Canby, in the southwest corner of the state, district officials say they need $8 million to update the high school gym. And in Eden Prairie, district officials want to make sure they can keep up with ongoing expenses.

All told, voters in 21 Minnesota school districts will weigh in on about $616 million in funding measures Nov. 8.

The bulk of those are requests for levies that will stretch over six to 10 years to pay for everything from teachers to routine maintenance and tech upgrades.
