Public forum for education cuts

The Dassel Cokato School Board will hold a public hearing on January 29th at 7pm in the DC Performing Arts Center, to discuss cuts that will need to be made after the November levy failed.

The board will have to trim more than $300,000 from its budget due to the failed levy. In total, the school district has cut nearly $1 million over the past several years. due to failed levies.

With the Legislature discussing property tax breaks for Minnesotan's to offset school levies, I wonder how much longer it will take for a Senator or Representative to exclude any school district that has not passed a levy in X amount of years.
