Board trims technology levy options

At Monday’s meeting, the Windom School Board trimmed its options when considering a technology-specific levy to place on the November ballot.

The discussion started with the board considering levy options of $200,000, $300,000, $400,000, or $500,000.

The board trimmed the list down to two options, $300,000, or $400,000.

Supt. Wayne Wormstadt said the district’s annual technology cost now exceeds $400,000.

“The current technology investment was vital to handle the pandemic, but it also indicates how education takes place in today’s environment,” Wormstadt said.

The board also is contemplating the prospect of putting a renewal of the current operating levy on the November ballot. That levy, which is $613 per pupil, has not changed since 2007, when it first was enacted after voter approval.

More on Monday’s school board meeting appears in the July 14 print edition of the Citizen.
