Capital Projects Levy Renewal

At the July 11 regular meeting, the White Bear Lake Area School Board unanimously voted in favor of placing a capital projects levy renewal question on the November ballot. The capital projects levy contributes significantly to the ability of the District to meet its ongoing and increasing capital needs. Renewal of the levy is projected to generate $2,590,309 annually for an additional 10 years beginning in 2024. 

The tax rate for district property owners will remain unchanged, as this is a straight renewal of an existing levy. 

The funds will be used in the following ways:

  • Safety and Security: The capital projects levy allows the district to maintain and increase safety and security measures and equipment throughout the district.

  • Technology and related services: The capital projects levy allows the district to provide classroom technology, software and computers for students. Related services include the maintenance of equipment and technology staff.

  • Textbooks, curriculum materials and equipment, and musical instruments: The capital projects levy allows the district to purchase textbooks, curriculum materials and equipment, and musical instruments according to our curriculum replacement cycle.

  • Transportation: The capital projects levy allows the district to purchase buses and vans to maintain its fleet for student transportation.
