Lack of state funding and a dwindling rainy-day savings has prompted Maple Lake Public Schools to turn to its taxpayers for the third time in three years.
On Tuesday, Nov. 7, people living within the Maple Lake School District will be asked to vote on two questions that, if passed, will allow the district to maintain its level of programming, services and technology.
If the referendum fails again the result will likely be larger class sizes at the elementary and high school, cuts to staff, support services and extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, Supt. Mark Redemske said.
Residents can vote Tuesday, Nov. 7, from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the Maple Lake High School Commons. Residents may also vote on school days on Sept. 22 through Nov. 6 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the school district office. Enter door D and go in the first door on the left.
Residents may also vote by absentee ballot by mail. Please contact Maureen Donohue in the Maple Lake Public School District Office at (320) 963-7522.
