Eastern Carver County Voters Approve Referendum Question

On November 2, voters approved Eastern Carver County Schools’ referendum question. The question, a $550 per pupil increase in the operating levy, was approved by 69% percent of voters.  

“Our communities have spoken, and I am grateful for their decision and the opportunities it will afford our learners in the years ahead,” Superintendent Lisa Sayles-Adams said. “This investment in our students, our staff, and our district will allow us to continue to offer the exceptional education our community expects and deserves.”

Approval of the referendum question allows the district to continue its commitment to providing students with access to high quality academics as well as other programming to support student development and success.

Election results are unofficial until they are canvassed by the School Board at its Nov. 10 regular meeting.

The Eastern Carver County School Board unanimously approved putting an operating referendum in front of voters in the November 2, 2021 election. The operating levy is a strategic investment in sustaining and building the district’s high quality educational and programming activities into the future. 

The 10-year operating levy would provide an increase in operating revenue of $550 per pupil, which equates to approximately $5.2 million of additional revenue for the district in the first year. The estimated tax impact on the average homeowner would be about $20/month, based on an average home value of $375,000.
