Voters in ISD 108 approved both the district’s operating and capital project levy requests. Due to issues with the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website, all the following information was provided by the district and are unofficial tallies.
Voters backed the operating levy request by a wide margin, with 65 percent of voters supporting the measure and 34.9 percent opposing it.
The capital projects levy saw similar support at the polls, with 63.7 percent of voters supporting the request and 36.2 percent opposing it.
The district maintains that revenue generated by the operating levy will enable the district to erase existing and projected budget deficits, update the curriculum and maintain existing programs and small class sizes. Revenue from the capital projects levy will allow Central Schools to maintain existing high school technology programs and expand technology offerings for elementary and middle school students.
Sara Eischens, Shelby Erickson, Sarah Lehrke and Kyle Strickfaden all claimed seats on the school board, according to the district, but vote percentages were unavailable on Election Night.
