Our district has been committed to investing in our school buildings in an equitable manner. The graph below shows investments by city from 2018 to today, including proposed Building a Better Future, Phase II school building projects. As you can see from the graph, Brooklyn Park will receive about $2 million more than Maple Grove if voters approve Building a Better Future, Phase II.
Please note: Major school building renovations or additions cannot be resourced through the maintenance fund. Only like for like changes can be made per Minnesota law (a playground for that same style playground). Also, there are not enough funds to meet the current needs. If approved by voters, the Building a Better Future, Phase II plan would utilize the maintenance fund dollars, as able by law, in conjunction with the bond. The combined efforts would lessen the burden on community members.
Note: There is one district school in Brooklyn Center and two in the city of Osseo.
