    2017 Operating Levy: Continuing to Define Excellence

    At its Aug. 14, 2017 meeting, the Edina School Board voted unanimously to authorize a special election on Tuesday, Nov. 7 for the community to vote on a ballot question for an operating levy. 

    The operating levy question seeks to renew the expiring operating levy and increase the district’s local revenue authority to provide needed operating funds for day-to-day expenses such as teachers, curriculum, transportation and utilities.

    Why a Proposed Levy Renewal and Increase

    Sustain Quality of Educational Programs

    • Attract and retain quality teachers and staff
    • Ensure students have skills needed to be prepared for college, career and life
    • Provide a personalized learning experience for each and every student
    • Remain competitive nationally and internationally

    Maintain Community's Investment

    • Current operating levy of $13.3 million expires June 30, 2018
    • Provides 12% of day-to-day operating budget
