The Anoka-Hennepin Schools superintendent along with his staff are trying to make sure the community is informed about three levy questions that are on the ballot this fall.
The first two would renew levies that are set to expire. The third question would raise new money to address growing mental health concerns.
Question one would renew the $34.5 million operating levy last renewed by voters in 2012. Funding is used to maintain programs and services along with keeping class sizes down. As an existing levy, there would be no tax increase.
Question two renews a $4.5 million capital levy for technology first approved by voters back in 2011. As an existing levy, there would be no tax increase.
Question three would involve a tax increase of about $10 a month for 10 years for a $250,000 home. The operating levy would be used to extend mental health and social emotional support for students including academic support for underachieving students.
