THE FAIRMONT AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT HELD A TOWN HALL MEETING ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THE MEETING WAS HELD TO INFORM THE PUBLIC AND TO SEEK PUBLIC INPUT ON A COUPLE OF TOPICS.

THE FIRST WAS A LOOK AT THE OPERATING LEVY RENEWAL TO BE VOTED ON NOV. 8TH WHEN FAIRMONT AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT VOTERS WILL BE ASKED TO RENEW THE CURRENT LEARNING LEVY FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS. THIS PROPOSAL WILL LOCK IN THE CURRENT PROPERTY TAXES GENERATED FOR THE FOR THAT PERIOD AND WILL NOT INCREASE LOCAL SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES FOR THE LEARNING LEVY. THE CURRENT LEVY OF 950 DOLLARS PER STUDENT EXPIRES IN 2017. BY RENEWING THE LEARNING LEVY AT THIS YEAR'S GENERAL ELECTION THE DISTRICT WILL NOT NEED TO PAY FOR A SPECIAL ELECTION IN 2017. THIS WILL SAVE THE SCHOOL DISTRICT TAX DOLLARS.

SINCE FAIRMONT'S LAST OPERATING LEVY ELECTION,THE MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION HAS CHANGED SOME OF THE CALCULATIONS USED IN DETERMINING OPERATING LEVY AMOUNTS AND THE LEGISLATURE CHANGED THE PUPIL WEIGHTING FORMULA FOR ALL AGES. AS A RESULT OF THE NEW FORMULAS THE CURRENT LEVY WAS SET AT 1,013.14 PER STUDENT BY LEGISLATIVE ACTION FOR ALL MINNESOTA SCHOOL DISTRICTS.

THE RENEWAL OF THE LEARNING LEVY WILL ALLOW FAIRMONT AREA SCHOOLS TO MAINTAIN CURRENT ACADEMIC,ATHLETIC AND FINE ARTS PROGRAMS FOR THE NEXT 10 YEARS.
