Clarification to school board report required

In response to clarification from Maple Lake Schools Superintendent Mark Redemske, corrections to last week’s report on the June 13 meeting of the Maple Lake School Board are in order.
In discussion of a proposed operating referendum and capital projects levy, the figure of $529.60 per pupil unit – which was the operating levy referendum amount last November – was used as a reference point and rounded to $530 for purposes of simplicity.
It is a number that may change for this year based on a number of variables, and the report should have stated that a key point Redemske made during the meeting was that a $530 increase in the per pupil unit amount does not correlate to a $530 increase in households taxes, and for most people would be significantly less than that.
The report also erroneously stated that a capital project referendum would add $100 to the per-pupil unit amount.
