Investing in Our Future
The plan consists of a three-question referendum that will be decided on by voters on November 2, 2021.

Levies are for Learning
The operating levy approved in 2013 was primarily used to address the most critical facility needs at the elementary school. It also has helped our district to implement our technology program, keep class sizes low, maintain programming, and serve our students every day. Our technology program has been a great start for our district, but we need to expand offerings and continue to work towards a 1:1 program offering a device for each of our students to better prepare them for the workforce.
If approved, Question One would renew the district's current referendum of $519.62 per pupil, plus increase by $150.65 per pupil, totaling $670.27 per pupil. The levy would provide a sustainable funding source for technology and technology infrastructure, as well as help maintain low class sizes and continue to provide excellent educational opportunities.
Bonds are for Buildings
After reviewing several different options to address our facility needs, the school board voted unanimously to pursue the option to construct a new, single-site campus while discontinuing use of current facilities.
Question Two, totaling $83,920,000, including bonding costs, proposes a new PreK-12 building. After receiving feedback from our community, the district is evaluating several site options for the new school.
Question Three, totaling $11,290,000, including bonding costs, proposes a multi-purpose single sheet ice arena to be connected to the new PreK-12 facility. The multi-purpose arena would be used for physical education classes across all grade levels as well as for the girls and boys high school hockey teams. When not in use by the district, open ice time will be made available to local hockey associations and for community use.
