Garretson School Board Authorizes Opt Out Election

At a special meeting on January 25, the Garretson Board of Education voted unanimously to pass a resolution to opt out of property tax limitations and hold an election on March 21 on the proposal. The school board has had several information sessions related to the financial condition of the district in the past few months. At the special meeting, the board heard more information regarding the district’s need to opt out in order to preserve current educational programming in the district. More information will be presented to the public in a variety of ways, with informational meetings with Q&A scheduled at a date and time yet to be determined. Written information provided to the board is available on the school’s website at this link: January 25th Special Meeting Packet
