2020 Operating Referendum

  • Monticello School District will officially propose a $6,044,546 operating referendum to voters on November 3, 2020.

    The school board’s decision to place the question on a ballot was driven by budget reductions the past three years and a forecast that calls for additional reductions well into the future.

    The levy would allow the district to:

    • Hire additional counselors and social workers to address social and emotional needs as well as academic support
    • Hire additional teachers to lower growing class sizes and expand offerings
    • Improve student technology offerings
    • Hire more support positions to help lead and innovate in this new era of education

    The district estimates that if the levy is approved, taxes on the average home ($250,000 value) would increase approximately $41 per month. The voter-approved funding would be used to support all students across the district.
