Inequities across school districts are growing

Districts are able to pass mill levy overrides (MLO) of up to 25% to increase local funding (30% for rurals). Additional overrides for kindergarten, transportation and tech are also possible.

There are 58 school districts that have never passed a MLO, 63 that have not passed a MLO since the Negative Factor hit schools in 2010, and 57 that have passed one or more MLOs since 2010.
