Faced with insufficient state funding and increasing educational costs, the District 281 School Board unanimously approved a resolution asking voters to consider a school funding increase on the November 6, 2018 ballot.

If voters approve the request, the funding would support district efforts to maintain Robbinsdale Area Schools’ academic and co-curricular programming for students. If voters do not approve the request, the district will face continued budget cuts.
