XIII.C. Resolution Relating to Approving New Referendum Revenue Authorizations, and Calling an Election
Presenter:  Superintendent Rudolph
Description: 
RESOLUTION RELATING TO APPROVING NEW REFERENDUM REVENUE AUTHORIZATIONS, AND CALLING AN ELECTION THEREON

WHEREAS, the mission of the Cambridge-Isanti Schools is to develop well-rounded individuals and responsible citizens who excel in leadership and achieve at the highest levels, which requires highly effective teachers and staff addressing the unique needs of each learner in partnership with parents, students and a unified community; and 

WHEREAS, strong communities have strong schools and protecting the values of Cambridge-Isanti Schools requires stable funding and operations at a time when state funding for education in Minnesota has not kept pace with inflation over the last decade and, according to a 2021 state education finance report, has lost 10% of its buying power since 2003; and

WHEREAS, Cambridge-Isanti Schools currently ranks in the bottom 7% of all Minnesota school districts in terms of per-student spending and funding; and 

WHEREAS, among area school districts (e.g. Mississippi 8 Conference) Cambridge-Isanti Schools rank last in per-student funding and last in per-student spending, resulting in larger class sizes, fewer career and technical opportunities, and fewer teachers, staff and critical supports for students; and

WHEREAS, high-quality teachers and staff are critical to high levels of student achievement and success, yet the district has had to cut 100 teaching and staff positions and reduce programs and services by $8.5 million over the last three years in order to balance its budget, resulting in larger class sizes and reduced opportunities and critical supports for students; and

WHEREAS, according to a 2020 Minnesota Department of Education report, the average voter-approved operating referendum in Minnesota is $864 per student; and 

WHEREAS, funding education in Minnesota is a shared responsibility requiring state, federal and local revenue, and Cambridge-Isanti Schools has gone without a local voter-approved operating referendum since 2004; and from 2003 to 2021, Minnesota’s general education basic revenue has fallen from 70% to 53% of all general education funding, and most Minnesota school districts have adopted a voter-approved operating referendum to fill the gap; and 

WHEREAS, our community faces critical workforce shortages including, but not limited to skilled trades, manufacturing, engineering, healthcare, and teaching, and our students need to be well educated and career-ready to fulfill the needs of our community and society; and

WHEREAS, if the district had a local voter-approved operating referendum, the district would unlock additional state aid and the state would pay 20% of the referendum amount (up to $460 per student) in equalization aid; and 

WHEREAS, without a local referendum, the district forfeits the equalization aid, which is a state appropriation, funded through state sales and income taxes, and those taxes are distributed to other communities and school districts; and 

WHEREAS, in 2021, the District expanded the school board’s Finance Committee to become a Citizens Financial Advisory Council and added community business leaders, to increase transparency, oversight and accountability for any future referendum proceeds, and the Board commits to continue maintaining that Citizens Financial Advisory Council over the duration of any approved referendum authorization; and

WHEREAS, a Citizens Task Force convened in January 2021 to examine district finances, facilities, operations and instructional areas; the Citizens Task Force found "a revenue problem" to be a significant barrier for the district in fulfilling its mission to provide a high-quality education to every Cambridge-Isanti student; and 

WHEREAS, the Citizens Task Force recommended that the School Board hold a referendum in November 2021 to increase its general education revenue by $565 per student, and use that revenue to hire and retain high-quality teachers and support students, which will help to reduce class size, maintain and improve student opportunities, and provide student supports; and  

WHEREAS, the Citizens Task Force further recommended that the School Board ask voters to approve a second question to further increase its general education revenue by $121 per student, and use that revenue to support vocational technical education and college readiness by maintaining and expanding vocational technical and career classes; increasing opportunities for students to earn college credits; adding apprenticeships; providing training and mentoring that prepare graduates for success in careers and college; and supporting the district’s K-12 student achievement goals; and

WHEREAS, if the proposed referendum is approved by voters, the School Board is committed to make reductions in other tax levies, which will reduce the tax impact from the proposed referendum; and
 
WHEREAS, if the proposed referendum is approved by voters, agricultural land will see a slight decrease in taxes with the School Board’s commitment to make reduction in other tax levies; and
 
WHEREAS, our children are the people who will carry our community forward; they will one day lead our cities, schools, businesses, churches, states, and nation; they are the future of our society, humanity is in their hands, and an educated citizenry is essential to a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the School Board of Independent School District No. 911, State of Minnesota, as follows:
1.    (a)       The Board hereby determines and declares that it is necessary and expedient for the school district to increase its general education revenue by $565 per adjusted pupil unit.  As provided by law, the ballot question must abbreviate the term "per adjusted pupil unit" as "per pupil." It is the present intention of the Board to use the additional revenue to hire and retain high-quality teachers and support students, and the property tax portion thereof will require an estimated referendum tax rate of approximately 0.09503% of the referendum market value of the school district for taxes payable in 2022, the first year it is to be levied. The proposed referendum revenue authorization would be applicable for ten (10) years unless otherwise revoked or reduced as provided by law. The question on the approval of this referendum revenue authorization shall be School District Question 1 on the school district ballot at the special election held to approve said authorization.

(b)    The Board hereby determines and declares that it is also necessary and expedient for the school district to increase its general education revenue by $121 per adjusted pupil unit.  As provided by law, the ballot question must abbreviate the term "per adjusted pupil unit" as "per pupil." It is the present intention of the Board to use the additional revenue to support vocational technology and college readiness and the property tax portion thereof will require an estimated referendum tax rate of approximately 0.0248% of the referendum market value of the school district for taxes payable in 2022, the first year it is to be levied.   The proposed referendum revenue authorization would be applicable for ten (10) years unless otherwise revoked or reduced as provided by law.   The question on the approval of this referendum revenue authorization shall be School District Question 2 on the school district ballot at the special election held to approve said authorization. The passage of said School District Question 2 shall be contingent upon the approval of School District Question 1 as described above and herein. 

2.    The ballot questions specified above shall be submitted to the qualified voters of the school district at a special election, which is hereby called and directed to be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, between the hours of 7:00 o'clock a.m. and 8:00 o'clock p.m.  This date is a uniform election date specified in Minnesota Statutes, Section 205A.05.

The clerk is hereby authorized and directed to cause the rules and instructions for use of the optical scan voting system to be posted in the combined polling places on election day.

The clerk is hereby authorized and directed to cause a notice of the election to be mailed to each taxpayer in the school district at least fifteen (15) but no more than forty-five (45) days prior to the date of the special election.  The notice shall contain the required projections and the required statement specified in Minnesota Statutes, Section 126C.17, subdivision 9, paragraph (b).  The clerk is also directed to cause a copy of this notice to be submitted to the Commissioner of Education and to the county auditor of each county in which the school district is located in whole or in part at least fifteen (15) days prior to the day of the election.

6.    The clerk is authorized and directed to acquire and distribute such election materials and to take such other actions as may be necessary for the proper conduct of this special election and generally to cooperate with election authorities conducting other elections on that date.

7.    The clerk is further authorized and directed to cause ballots to be prepared for use at said election in substantially the following form, with such changes in form, color and instructions as may be necessary to accommodate an optical scan voting system:

8.    If the school district will be contracting to print the ballots for this special election, the clerk is hereby authorized and directed to prepare instructions to the printer for layout of the ballot.  Before a contract in excess of $1,000 is awarded for printing ballots, the printer, at the request of the election official, shall furnish, in accordance with Minnesota Statutes, Section 204D.04, a sufficient bond, letter of credit or certified check acceptable to the clerk in an amount not less than $1,000 conditioned on printing the ballots in conformity with the Minnesota election law and the instructions delivered.  The clerk shall set the amount of the bond, letter of credit, or certified check in an amount equal to the value of the purchase.
