Survey Suggests Sauk Rapids-Rice Residents Open To Operating Levy

SAUK RAPIDS — A new survey suggests residents in the Sauk Rapids-Rice school district would be willing to increase their own property taxes.  However, a majority of the respondents either work in the district or have students in the district.

In general, 65% of the participants supported an increase in property taxes to maintain class sizes, provide additional transportation, and update student technology.

The e-mail survey was distributed between March 7th and April 8th.  Of the 979 completed surveys, 753 were taken by parents, 199 by school district employees, and 27 by community members.

Currently 90% of Minnesota school districts have an operating levy.  Sauk Rapids-Rice is one of 36 districts that doesn’t.

The school board is expected to make a decision in either May or June whether to ask for voters to approve an operating levy.
