Months of planning results in two school funding requests on Nov 7 ballot to address PLSAS growth

Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools (PLSAS) has a good problem: it is a popular and growing school district. Families have been and continue to move into the district to attend the PLSAS schools, which are known for quality teaching staff, great academics and E-STEM opportunities.

Based on extensive analysis of this continued enrollment growth and recommendations from a community-based Facilities Task Force, the School Board approved placing two school funding requests on the November 7 ballot:

Question 1: $109.3M in 20-year bonds to add space for the growing enrollment

    • New elementary school
    • Classroom space and other additions and renovations to several elementary and both middle schools
    • High school additions and renovations including classrooms, expanded cafeteria, increased gym spaces for physical education classes, additional parking lot
    • New Bridges Area Learning Center

Question 2: Renew and increase operating levy to $924 per student for 10 years to fund staff and operations for our growing enrollment

    • Continues existing operating levy that funds current schools and staff
    • Provides additional operating funds needed to hire staff, equip and operate the new schools and spaces in Q1

“Working with our community, we rolled up our sleeves and started from square one on our facilities planning,” said School Board chair Richard Wolf. “These funding requests address the fact that we are a popular and growing school district with more and more kids coming. Our job is to provide them with space, staff and opportunities to succeed.”

If both requests are approved by voters, the tax impact on a $300,000 home will be less than $21.50 per month.
