Kingsland school referendum


Fri, Oct 1st, 2010
Posted in Education



A recently formed committee of the Kingsland Public Schools will be reaching out to the community in the next few weeks to furnish information and answer questions regarding the upcoming revenue authorization. Currently the existing referendum revenue authorization is $300.38 per pupil. If approved by the voters, that would be replaced with a new authorization of $700.00 per pupil. This would be effective for taxes payable in 2011 and would provide additional funds for the next nine years. According to a school district spokesperson, this would result in smaller class sizes, purchase supplies, and to help the district keep programs and enhancements.

Details surrounding the referendum can be found on the district's website: www.kingsland.k12.mn.us.

The proposal will be voted on by the district's residents on November 2.
