School districts will just do anything to get our money. In this case it’s the Wayzata school district;

The Wayzata School Board (School District 284) voted unanimously to place two school funding questions before voters at a special election on Feb. 25, 2014. The referendum is in response to unprecedented growth from new housing developments, increasingly larger classes moving from the middle schools to Wayzata High School and the recent addition of state-funded, all-day Kindergarten beginning in the fall of 2014 that are impacting district facility needs.

  • Question one: Request to approve $109.645 million in bond funding to expand Wayzata High School, build a new elementary school and upgrade safety, security and technology districtwide.
  • Question two: Request to renew the existing technology levy, which funds technology equipment, support and training districtwide with approximately $2.7 million annually.

What is this? An election in February? This should be in November of an even year like all other elections should be! They are trying to pull this over your heads voters of Wayzata…..vote NO and force an honest election in November!
