The Sleepy Eye Public School board approved a resolution Thursday to seek a levy referendum during general elections this fall.
"For the past three years we have been going for one," Superintendent John Cselovszki. "We are down to the bottom line dollar."
The levy proposed will be a five-year, $500 per pupil unit levy referendum that would raise taxes on a home valued at $100,000 by $110 per year.
"Essentially it equals less than $10 a month," Cselovski added.
If passed, the additional revenue will be used to finance school operations.
In other news, the board approved:
* the resignations of Annette Berg, Katie Schmiesing, Tamatha Minter and Kaleb Walter.
* the hire of Mary Mulry, Julia Coulson, Lauren Lippert, Jordan Rathman, Lauren Hoffmann, Ashley Price, Kirstie Fischer, Kathy Burden and Alisa Mangen.
* to accept a $125 donation for the media/library from the Schmid family.
* to accept a Target First Book grant of $500.
