About one in five of Minnesota's school districts have property tax referendums on Tuesday's ballot, Minnesota Public Radio reports.
According to MPR, the greatest concentration of school referendums are located in the Twin Cities metro area.
Scott Croonquist, the executive director of the Association of Metropolitan School Districts, tells the Pioneer Press that the number of ballot requests is similar to other recent off-year elections.
Some schools are facing significant staffing and program cuts if their levy requests are not approved.
Among them is the Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan School District, the Apple Valley-Rosemount Patch reports. The district's ballot measure is asking voters for an additional $10 million a year, equating to about $15 more per month for owners of homes valued at $225,000.
The Stillwater School District is seeking an operating levy of $5.6 million to close a budget deficit. According to the Pioneer Press, the district says it will have to cut up to 50 teachers, increase class sizes, and consider moving to a four-day school week if the levy does not pass.
