Keep Technology Strong in our Schools
On November 7, 2023, Wayzata School district residents will be asked to vote on the renewal of technology levy funding. A technology levy, also known as a capital projects levy, is a locally-approved source of funding. These funds must be dedicated for technology-related needs. The State of Minnesota does not dedicate funds for technology in our schools. Districts must rely on voter-approved levies. Thanks to strong community support, Wayzata Public Schools currently has two technology levies in place. One will expire after taxes payable in 2025.
The request is for the renewal of a 10-year technology levy of $5.7 million per year. Approval of the levy will allow the district to:
- Replace aging classroom technology equipment and student and staff devices
- Maintain school safety and security systems
- Maintain essential technology support for students and staff.
There is no tax increase if voters approve the levy because it is a renewal of an existing locally-approved technology levy.
