Voters approve $225 per pupil for Nevis School District

Voters approved a $252 per pupil operating levy for Nevis School District but voted down a second question asking for $225 in additional dollars for technology.

The vote total was 378 yes votes and 338 no votes for the first question; 231 yes votes and 482 no votes for the second question.

The $252 levy will double the school's existing levy of $126, which expires at year's end.

Nevis was one of 126 Minnesota school districts - more than a third - seeking a levy referendum, the highest number in more than a decade. Continuing budget shifts from the state Legislature prompted the request for taxpayer help.
