At Minneapolis Public Schools, our goal is to ensure that every student graduates prepared for college, careers and life. A levy helps fund important educational programs and services that are not fully funded by the state. Each year, MPS can levy additional property tax revenue of up to to $189.8 million. For Fiscal Year 2014, the Board of Education approved a reduced levy of $113.6 million in order to lessen the burden on taxpayers. This meeting will give you an opportunity to learn more about this process.
