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.
