Thank you to everyone who supported this funding request, shared information with others, and stood up for kids at the polls. Every student in Saint Paul Public Schools will benefit from this community support.
The additional funding will help us invest in students and reimagine what success looks like for our diverse, vibrant school district.
We believe that every student deserves an opportunity to thrive. Thank you for voting YES to make a bright future for all Saint Paul kids possible.

The Challenge

Keeping pace with the educational needs of our students and our city.

The Ballot Question

Support an operating levy increase to enable Saint Paul Public Schools to invest more in our schools and limit additional budget cuts.

A yes vote will maintain the current operating levy and provide an additional $475 per student.

Why Now?

  • The Saint Paul Public District has been forced to cut more than $50 million from its budget in the past three years.
  • The 2018-19 budget has required cuts of $17.2 million.
  • Federal, state and local funding is not keeping pace with inflation or the educational needs of our students. Unfunded State and federal mandates continue to divert funds from classrooms.

Because our kids and our city deserve the best education we can provide.
