Opt-Out 2019-20 Archive

 
Ootout logo
 
In previous communications, radio discussions, State of the School presentations, and various community presentations over the past two years we have communicated the impending need for an Opt Out in the Yankton School District.  We also provided input and discussion opportunities from the public during our “Forward 2024” Strategic Plan this past school year regarding an Opt Out for the Yankton School District.  School funding continues to challenge schools across our state, including the Yankton School District. 
 
On January 2, 2020 the Yankton School Board approved an opt out resolution in the maximum annual sum not exceeding $1,850,000 for a period of four (4) years, commencing with the year 2020 property taxes payable in the year 2021.  The exact amount of the additional tax levied will be determined annually by the School Board, but will not exceed $1,850,000 per year.
 
 
Over 30 presentations and listening/question/answer sessions have been made
to various civic and community groups since September.  In addition, radio and newspaper interviews have taken place regarding the Opt Out, along with information in Kindle's Korner.
See tables below for a recording of Dr.Kindle's Presentation and other opt-out information.
