MACCRAY Board votes to hold levy referendum in late 2009


CLARA CITY -- The MACCRAY School District plans to ask its voters to approve a new operating levy in November.

The School Board voted Monday to place on the fall ballot a referendum question revoking an existing $500 per pupil levy and replacing it with a new $1,100 per pupil levy.

The levy would allow the district to maintain the programs it has now and avoid cutting the budget for a while, said Superintendent Greg Schmidt.
