Perham school levy jumps 19 percent; Voter-approved funds account for most of that increase
The Perham-Dent school board has approved a preliminary levy, payable in 2013, of 19.4 percent more than the current levy.
This sharp increase is mostly due to the referendum approved by voters earlier this year. Without that referendum, the overall levy would have increased by .78 percent.
The referendum was approved last April, bringing $440,000 to the school district to pay for technology improvements over the next five years.
