Waconia Public Schools Operating Levy Passed by Voters

ISD ONE10 voters approved the Waconia Public Schools request for additional school funding through an operating levy, 58% yes to 42% no (unofficial results until certified).

The operating levy will generate $525 per student, resulting in approximately $2.2 million in additional annual school funding starting in 2019 and continue for 10 years.  The operating levy will provide critical funding to support our classrooms, instruction, and other operating costs.

“We are very thankful for the support of our schools by this wonderful school district community,” Pat Devine, superintendent of Waconia Public Schools, said. “I want to thank voters for taking the time to listen, learn, ask questions and partnering together to support our kids. We do believe that strong schools equal strong communities.”

We are very appreciative that we are able to continue our excellent programming for kids of ISD ONE10.

The additional funding will help the school district:

  • Maintain quality education programming currently offered
  • Develop additional business partnerships that prepare students for work or college after high school through authentic learning experiences
  • Strengthen student support systems
  • Provide students with more voice and choice through personalized learning
  • Support the commitments outlined in the community-developed strategic roadmap
  • Explore new academic and activity programs

ISD ONE10 also welcomes the school board members who were elected. Twelve candidates ran for four open seats.
