Yesterday the voters in the Northfield school district approved the operating levy on the ballot. Roughly 57% of the voters gave approval of this important levy referendum. The levy will generate approximately $3 million of funds for the Northfield schools for each of the next four years. $2.25 million of this will come from the District taxpayers, and another $750,000 from the state from the levy equalization program.
It is wonderful to see this great local support for this school levy. Strong schools build strong communities, and strong communities have good jobs. Our board, teachers and administrators do an excellent job running our schools….I think the Northfield schools are some of the best in the state.
Congratulations to the Citizens for Quality Education/Vote Yes committee, teachers, staff and most importantly, the voters who approved this important operating levy.
