Certification of proposed property tax levy

Executive director of administrative services Bernice Humnick reviewed proposed property tax levies to be certified to the county. Proposed levies for school districts carry the option of levying the "maximum," which means the Minnesota Department of Education calculates a district's allowable levy limit(s) that are set by state statute or voter approval. The Board approved the recommendation to certify the proposed property taxes as "maximum" for the payable 2023 tax levy.

Community Education/Early Childhood programming update

Karl Brown, director of community education, and Barb Schochenmaier, early childhood coordinator, presented a report on this year's district operational plan (DOP) goal of expanding access to Community Education programs, focusing on Early Childhood Education. Brown and Schochenmaier gave an overview of the program and class offerings. Proposed expanded class offerings were shared. Registration for the 2023-24 programs will open in February of 2023.


The Board discussed issues and updates related to Northeast Metro 916 and AMSD, and shared updates on their activities and participation in events and committees around the District.
