Minneapolis voters
pass school levy

From the Minneapolis Labor Review, November 18, 2016

MINNEAPOLIS — The school levy on the ballot in Minneapolis November 8 passed overwhelmingly with 83.43 percent of voters voting “yes.”

The levy would generate $74 million annually for the Minneapolis Public Schools and is a renewal of a levy set to expire after the 2016-2017 school year.

The Minneapolis Regional Labor Federation, AFL-CIO along with the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers recommended a “yes” vote.

The renewal of the levy is not expected to result in a tax increase.

Revenue from the levy will help to maintain current staffing levels and class sizes.
