The proposed new referendum revenue authorization would increase each year by the rate of inflation and be applicable for ten years, beginning with taxes payable in 2018, unless otherwise revoked or reduced as provided by law.

Tax increases shown above are gross increases, not including the impact of the state Property Tax Refund ("CircuitBreaker") program. Many owners of homestead property will qualify for a refund, based on their income and total property taxes. This will decrease the net effect of the proposed operating referendum for many property owners. For commercial-industrial property, the estimates above are for property in the City of South St. Paul. The tax impact for commercial-industrial property in other municipalities in the school district may be slightly different due to the varying impact of the Twin Cities Fiscal Disparityprogram.

A. Superintendent’s Comments 

We are starting the 4th week of school. Thank you to our students, staff, families and community for a successful start of the school year. Our staff focus the week prior to the start of school was on taking care of our staff so they can take care of our students. The learning relationships that exist between our students, staff and families is the key to student success. 

Thank you to our district office, school staff and custodial staff for their work in advance of the school year to have everything ready for our students and teachers. 

MN received a No Child Left Behind flexibility waiver in 2012. With the waiver MN established a goal to reduce achievement gaps by 50 percent by 2017. Tina Willette, Salem Hills/Atheneum principal received notification they have met the goal in both math and reading. This is amazing and congratulations to the staff and school community. 

We continue with our referendum communication to assist our school district voters with making and informed decision when they go to the polls. Please be sure to check out the Fast Facts mailed to all residents the week of September 11 and our district website for information. 

Earlier this month we offered a school board candidate information session. We have also asked the eight candidates to provide information to assist voters. The information submitted will be posted on the district web site and included in an election mailer to all school district residents. 

As always our students are very active outside the day and we invite community members to check activities on the district website. Next week is Homecoming week! 

B. School Board Comments 

Board Chair, Matt Schaefer—The start of school is always an adjustment for me and my family, but we are getting through it. I want to thank the LINK and WEB crews for the first day of school work assisting new students in the buildings. I participated in an ice cream social at Salem Hills a few weeks ago and there was a great turnout. I want to thank the PTSA’s of the district and the work they do. 

Board Vice Chair/Treasurer, Sue Gliva —Time has been flying! Over the last few weeks I was able to attend a group meeting on gifted education. It included surrounding families and districts. I learned there is a group of students considered twice exceptional and gifted. One of the items discussed was funding. If anyone is interested in more information please contact me. 

Board Clerk, Sherry Warrick— Thank you to Sue Vallafskey, Jessica Goodwin and all of the students with us this evening. I would like to wish the staff and students a great start and a great year! Welcome to all the new students and teachers here in our district. I was present at a luncheon last week with an organization called TreeHouse, which brings hope to hurting youth. Goal is to help teens graduate high school and pursue an educational or vocational track for their future. There are ten locations in the area. Julie Nelson from Kare11 is on the board for that organization. This is a positive and rewarding program for youth. 

Board Member, Paul Mandell—So far the weather has been cooperative I’ve been enjoying fall sports. Hopefully we will be into the fall weather and not be wearing gloves too soon! Congratulations to our football team for winning against Hasting! 

Board Member, Cindy Nordstrom —Inspire: As a teacher during the day and board member during the night, the Hilltop students have inspired me to load an application in my classroom for coding. Innovate: I had the opportunity to work with a professor at the University of St. Thomas on a project creating educational videos for students. It is a rewarding project and it is currently being edited to be used by teachers for future educational use. Excel: Congratulations to Greg Kerkvliet on his wrestling Cadet World Finals accomplishment! We were watching it live as we were waiting for my son to get married! Way to go for the gold Greg! 

Board Member, Rachel Hanson—What a delight it was learning about coding from the Hilltop students this evening. I have to complement our Early Learning Center staff and their commitment teaching Pre-K students transition into a school setting. I appreciate their commitment. 

Board Member, Lynette Stensgard—The IGH Day’s parade was well attending. Fall sports are winding down and playoffs are beginning to start. Tonight was just pure joy! Those words used on the wall for the coding presentation given by students tonight are words I use every day. I was completely impressed! It was so clever and engaging. I want to applaud the district on the fabulous job of getting the information together for the referendum and for the transparency of the process.
