Subdivision 1.

Referendum allowance.

deleted text begin (a) For fiscal year 2003 and later, a district's

Subd. 8.

Unequalized referendum levy.

Each year, a district may levy an amount
equal to the difference between its total referendum revenue according to subdivision 4
and its referendum equalization revenue according to subdivision 5.

Subd. 9.

Referendum revenue.

(a) The revenue authorized by section 126C.10,
subdivision 1
, may be increased in the amount approved by the voters of the district
at a referendum called for the purpose. The referendum may be called by the board.
The referendum must be conducted one or two calendar years before the increased levy
authority, if approved, first becomes payable. Only one election to approve an increase
may be held in a calendar year. Unless the referendum is conducted by mail under
subdivision 11, paragraph (a), the referendum must be held on the first Tuesday after the
first Monday in November. The ballot must state the maximum amount of the increased
revenue per deleted text beginresident marginal costdeleted text endnew text begin adjustednew text end pupil unit. The ballot may state a schedule,
determined by the board, of increased revenue per deleted text beginresident marginal costdeleted text endnew text begin adjustednew text end pupil
unit that differs from year to year over the number of years for which the increased revenue
is authorized or may state that the amount shall increase annually by the rate of inflation.
For this purpose, the rate of inflation shall be the annual inflationary increase calculated
under subdivision 2, paragraph (b). The ballot may state that existing referendum levy
authority is expiring. In this case, the ballot may also compare the proposed levy authority
to the existing expiring levy authority, and express the proposed increase as the amount, if
any, over the expiring referendum levy authority. The ballot must designate the specific
number of years, not to exceed ten, for which the referendum authorization applies. The
ballot, including a ballot on the question to revoke or reduce the increased revenue amount
under paragraph (c), must abbreviate the term "per deleted text beginresident marginal costdeleted text endnew text begin adjustednew text end pupil
unit" as "per pupil." The notice required under section 275.60 may be modified to read, in
cases of renewing existing levies at the same amount per pupil as in the previous year:

"BY VOTING "YES" ON THIS BALLOT QUESTION, YOU ARE VOTING
TO EXTEND AN EXISTING PROPERTY TAX REFERENDUM THAT IS
SCHEDULED TO EXPIRE."

The ballot may contain a textual portion with the information required in this
subdivision and a question stating substantially the following:

"Shall the increase in the revenue proposed by (petition to) the board of .........,
School District No. .., be approved?"

If approved, an amount equal to the approved revenue per deleted text beginresident marginal cost
deleted text endnew text begin adjustednew text end pupil unit times the deleted text beginresident marginal costdeleted text endnew text begin adjustednew text end pupil units for the school
year beginning in the year after the levy is certified shall be authorized for certification
for the number of years approved, if applicable, or until revoked or reduced by the voters
of the district at a subsequent referendum.

(b) The board must prepare and deliver by first class mail at least 15 days but no more
than 30 days before the day of the referendum to each taxpayer a notice of the referendum
and the proposed revenue increase. The board need not mail more than one notice to any
taxpayer. For the purpose of giving mailed notice under this subdivision, owners must be
those shown to be owners on the records of the county auditor or, in any county where
tax statements are mailed by the county treasurer, on the records of the county treasurer.
Every property owner whose name does not appear on the records of the county auditor
or the county treasurer is deemed to have waived this mailed notice unless the owner
has requested in writing that the county auditor or county treasurer, as the case may be,
include the name on the records for this purpose. The notice must project the anticipated
amount of tax increase in annual dollars for typical residential homesteads, agricultural
homesteads, apartments, and commercial-industrial property within the school district.

The notice for a referendum may state that an existing referendum levy is expiring
and project the anticipated amount of increase over the existing referendum levy in
the first year, if any, in annual dollars for typical residential homesteads, agricultural
homesteads, apartments, and commercial-industrial property within the district.

The notice must include the following statement: "Passage of this referendum will
result in an increase in your property taxes." However, in cases of renewing existing levies,
the notice may include the following statement: "Passage of this referendum extends an
existing operating referendum at the same amount per pupil as in the previous year."

(c) A referendum on the question of revoking or reducing the increased revenue
amount authorized pursuant to paragraph (a) may be called by the board. A referendum to
revoke or reduce the revenue amount must state the amount per resident marginal cost
pupil unit by which the authority is to be reduced. Revenue authority approved by the
voters of the district pursuant to paragraph (a) must be available to the school district at
least once before it is subject to a referendum on its revocation or reduction for subsequent
years. Only one revocation or reduction referendum may be held to revoke or reduce
referendum revenue for any specific year and for years thereafter.

(d) The approval of 50 percent plus one of those voting on the question is required to
pass a referendum authorized by this subdivision.

(e) At least 15 days before the day of the referendum, the district must submit a
copy of the notice required under paragraph (b) to the commissioner and to the county
auditor of each county in which the district is located. Within 15 days after the results
of the referendum have been certified by the board, or in the case of a recount, the
certification of the results of the recount by the canvassing board, the district must notify
the commissioner of the results of the referendum.

Subd. 10.

School referendum levy; market value.

A school referendum levy must
be levied against the referendum market value of all taxable property as defined in section
126C.01, subdivision 3. Any referendum levy amount subject to the requirements of this
subdivision must be certified separately to the county auditor under section 275.07.

Subd. 11.

Referendum date.

(a) Except for a referendum held under paragraph (b),
any referendum under this section held on a day other than the first Tuesday after the first
Monday in November must be conducted by mail in accordance with section 204B.46.
Notwithstanding subdivision 9, paragraph (b), to the contrary, in the case of a referendum
conducted by mail under this paragraph, the notice required by subdivision 9, paragraph (b),
must be prepared and delivered by first-class mail at least 20 days before the referendum.

(b) In addition to the referenda allowed in subdivision 9, clause (a), the commissioner
may grant authority to a district to hold a referendum on a different day if the district is in
statutory operating debt and has an approved plan or has received an extension from the
department to file a plan to eliminate the statutory operating debt.

(c) The commissioner must approve, deny, or modify each district's request for a
referendum levy on a different day within 60 days of receiving the request from a district.

Subd. 13.

Referendum conversion allowance.

A school district that received
supplemental or transition revenue in fiscal year 2002 may convert its supplemental
revenue conversion allowance and transition revenue conversion allowance to additional
referendum allowance under subdivision 1 for fiscal year 2003 and thereafter. A majority
of the school board must approve the conversion at a public meeting before November 1,
2001. For a district with other referendum authority, the referendum conversion allowance
approved by the board continues until the portion of the district's other referendum
authority with the earliest expiration date after June 30, 2006, expires. For a district
with no other referendum authority, the referendum conversion allowance approved by
the board continues until June 30, 2012.

Subdivision 1.

To lease building or land.

(a) When an independent or a special
school district or a group of independent or special school districts finds it economically
advantageous to rent or lease a building or land for any instructional purposes or for
school storage or furniture repair, and it determines that the operating capital revenue
authorized under section 126C.10, subdivision 13, is insufficient for this purpose, it may
apply to the commissioner for permission to make an additional capital expenditure levy
for this purpose. An application for permission to levy under this subdivision must contain
financial justification for the proposed levy, the terms and conditions of the proposed
lease, and a description of the space to be leased and its proposed use.

(b) The criteria for approval of applications to levy under this subdivision must
include: the reasonableness of the price, the appropriateness of the space to the proposed
activity, the feasibility of transporting pupils to the leased building or land, conformity
of the lease to the laws and rules of the state of Minnesota, and the appropriateness of
the proposed lease to the space needs and the financial condition of the district. The
commissioner must not authorize a levy under this subdivision in an amount greater than
the cost to the district of renting or leasing a building or land for approved purposes.
The proceeds of this levy must not be used for custodial or other maintenance services.
A district may not levy under this subdivision for the purpose of leasing or renting a
district-owned building or site to itself.

(c) For agreements finalized after July 1, 1997, a district may not levy under this
subdivision for the purpose of leasing: (1) a newly constructed building used primarily
for regular kindergarten, elementary, or secondary instruction; or (2) a newly constructed
building addition or additions used primarily for regular kindergarten, elementary, or
secondary instruction that contains more than 20 percent of the square footage of the
previously existing building.

(d) Notwithstanding paragraph (b), a district may levy under this subdivision for the
purpose of leasing or renting a district-owned building or site to itself only if the amount
is needed by the district to make payments required by a lease purchase agreement,
installment purchase agreement, or other deferred payments agreement authorized by law,
and the levy meets the requirements of paragraph (c). A levy authorized for a district by
the commissioner under this paragraph may be in the amount needed by the district to
make payments required by a lease purchase agreement, installment purchase agreement,
or other deferred payments agreement authorized by law, provided that any agreement
include a provision giving the school districts the right to terminate the agreement
annually without penalty.

(e) The total levy under this subdivision for a district for any year must not exceed
deleted text begin$150deleted text endnew text begin $162new text end times the deleted text beginresidentdeleted text endnew text begin adjustednew text end pupil units for the fiscal year to which the levy
is attributable.

(f) For agreements for which a review and comment have been submitted to the
Department of Education after April 1, 1998, the term "instructional purpose" as used in
this subdivision excludes expenditures on stadiums.

(g) The commissioner of education may authorize a school district to exceed the
limit in paragraph (e) if the school district petitions the commissioner for approval. The
commissioner shall grant approval to a school district to exceed the limit in paragraph (e)
for not more than five years if the district meets the following criteria:

(1) the school district has been experiencing pupil enrollment growth in the
preceding five years;

(2) the purpose of the increased levy is in the long-term public interest;

(3) the purpose of the increased levy promotes colocation of government services; and

(4) the purpose of the increased levy is in the long-term interest of the district by
avoiding over construction of school facilities.

(h) A school district that is a member of an intermediate school district may include
in its authority under this section the costs associated with leases of administrative and
classroom space for intermediate school district programs. This authority must not
exceed deleted text begin$43deleted text endnew text begin $46new text end times the adjusted deleted text beginmarginal costdeleted text end pupil units of the member districts. This
authority is in addition to any other authority authorized under this section.

(i) In addition to the allowable capital levies in paragraph (a), for taxes payable in
2012 to 2023, a district that is a member of the "Technology and Information Education
Systems" data processing joint board, that finds it economically advantageous to enter into
a lease agreement to finance improvements to a building and land for a group of school
districts or special school districts for staff development purposes, may levy for its portion
of lease costs attributed to the district within the total levy limit in paragraph (e). The total
levy authority under this paragraph shall not exceed $632,000.

(j) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), a district may levy under this subdivision for the
purpose of leasing administrative space if the district can demonstrate to the satisfaction of
the commissioner that the lease cost for the administrative space is no greater than the
lease cost for instructional space that the district would otherwise lease. The commissioner
must deny this levy authority unless the district passes a resolution stating its intent to
lease instructional space under this section if the commissioner does not grant authority
under this paragraph. The resolution must also certify that the lease cost for administrative
space under this paragraph is no greater than the lease cost for the district's proposed
instructional lease.

interventions, or remediation; and, based on analysis of students' progress and performance
data, determine students' learning and instructional needs and the instructional tools and
best practices that support academic rigor for the student; and
new text end

new text begin (3) consistent with this paragraph and section 120B.125, age-appropriate exploration

relevant career interests and aptitudes and help students and their families develop a
regularly reexamined transition plan for postsecondary education or employment without
need for postsecondary remediation.
new text end

new text begin Based on appropriate state guidelines, students with an individualized education program
may satisfy state graduation requirements by achieving an individual score on the
state-identified alternative assessments.
new text end

new text begin Expectations of schools, districts, and the state for career or college readiness under
this subdivision must be comparable in rigor, clarity of purpose, and rates of student
completion. A student under clause (2) must receive targeted, relevant, academically
rigorous, and resourced instruction, which may include a targeted instruction and
intervention plan focused on improving the student's knowledge and skills in core subjects
so that the student has a reasonable chance to succeed in a career or college without need
for postsecondary remediation. Consistent with sections 120B.13, 124D.09, 124D.091,
124D.49, and related sections, an enrolling school or district must actively encourage a
student in grade 11 or 12 who is identified as academically ready for a career or college
to participate in courses and programs awarding college credit to high school students.
Students are not required to achieve a specified score or level of proficiency on an
assessment under this subdivision to graduate from high school.

deleted text end

deleted text begin (3) fully participate in at least two retests of the mathematics GRAD test or until
they pass the mathematics GRAD test, whichever comes first.
deleted text end new text begin To improve the secondary
and postsecondary outcomes of all students, the alignment between secondary and
postsecondary education programs and Minnesota's workforce needs, and the efficiency
and cost-effectiveness of secondary and postsecondary programs, the commissioner, after
consulting with the chancellor of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and using
a request for proposal process, shall contract for a series of assessments that are consistent
with this subdivision, aligned with state academic standards, and include career and college
readiness benchmarks. Mathematics, reading, and writing assessments for students in
grades 8 and 10 must be predictive of a nationally normed assessment for career and college
readiness. This nationally recognized assessment must be a college entrance exam and
given to students in grade 11. This series of assessments must include a college placement
diagnostic exam and contain career exploration elements. The commissioner and the
chancellor of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities must collaborate in aligning
instruction and assessments for adult basic education students to provide the students with
diagnostic information about any targeted interventions they need so that they may seek
postsecondary education or employment without need for postsecondary remediation.
new text end

new text begin (1) Districts and schools, on an annual basis, must use the career exploration
elements in these assessments to help students, beginning no later than grade 9, and their
families explore and plan for postsecondary education or careers based on the students'
interests, aptitudes, and aspirations. Districts and schools must use timely regional labor
market information and partnerships, among other resources, to help students and their
families successfully develop, pursue, review, and revise an individualized plan for
postsecondary education or a career. This process must help increase students' engagement
in and connection to school, improve students' knowledge and skills, and deepen students'
understanding of career pathways as a sequence of academic and career courses that lead
to an industry-recognized credential, an associate's degree, or a bachelor's degree and are
available to all students, whatever their interests and career goals.
new text end

new text begin (2) Students in grade 10 or 11 not yet academically ready for a career or college based
on their growth in academic achievement between grades 8 and 10 must take the college
placement diagnostic exam before taking the college entrance exam under clause (3).
Students, their families, the school, and the district can then use the results of the college
placement diagnostic exam for targeted instruction, intervention, or remediation and
improve students' knowledge and skills in core subjects sufficient for a student to graduate
and have a reasonable chance to succeed in a career or college without remediation.
new text end

new text begin (3) All students except those eligible for alternative assessments must be given the
college entrance part of these assessments in grade 11. A student under this clause who
demonstrates attainment of required state academic standards, which include career and
college readiness benchmarks, on these assessments is academically ready for a career or
college and is encouraged to participate in courses awarding college credit to high school
students. Such courses and programs may include sequential courses of study within
broad career areas and technical skill assessments that extend beyond course grades.
new text end

new text begin (4) As appropriate, students through grade 12 must continue to participate in targeted
instruction, intervention, or remediation and be encouraged to participate in courses
awarding college credit to high school students.
new text end

new text begin (5) A study to determine the alignment between these assessments and state
academic standards under this chapter must be conducted. Where alignment exists, the
commissioner must seek federal approval to, and immediately upon receiving approval,
replace the federally required assessments referenced under subdivision 1a and section
120B.35, subdivision 2, with assessments under this paragraph.
new text end

new text begin (e) In developing, supporting, and improving students' academic readiness for a
career or college, schools, districts, and the state must have a continuum of empirically
derived, clearly defined benchmarks focused on students' attainment of knowledge and
skills so that students, their parents, and teachers know how well students must perform to
have a reasonable chance to succeed in a career or college without need for postsecondary
remediation. The commissioner, in consultation with local school officials and educators,
and Minnesota's public postsecondary institutions must ensure that the foundational
knowledge and skills for students' successful performance in postsecondary employment
or education and an articulated series of possible targeted interventions are clearly
identified and satisfy Minnesota's postsecondary admissions requirements.

Minnesota Statutes 2012, section 120B.35, subdivision 3, is amended to read:


Subd. 3.

State growth target; other state measures.

(a) The state's educational
assessment system measuring individual students' educational growth is based on
indicators of achievement growth that show an individual student's prior achievement.
Indicators of achievement and prior achievement must be based on highly reliable
statewide or districtwide assessments.

(b) The commissioner, in consultation with a stakeholder group that includes
assessment and evaluation directors and staff and researchers must implement a model
that uses a value-added growth indicator and includes criteria for identifying schools
and school districts that demonstrate medium and high growth under section 120B.299,
subdivisions 8 and 9, and may recommend other value-added measures under section
120B.299, subdivision 3. The model may be used to advance educators' professional
development and replicate programs that succeed in meeting students' diverse learning
needs. Data on individual teachers generated under the model are personnel data under
section 13.43. The model must allow users to:

(1) report student growth consistent with this paragraph; and

(2) for all student categories, report and compare aggregated and disaggregated state
growth data using the nine student categories identified under the federal 2001 No Child
Left Behind Act and two student gender categories of male and female, respectively,
following appropriate reporting practices to protect nonpublic student data.

The commissioner must report deleted text beginseparatedeleted text end measures of student growth deleted text beginand proficiencydeleted text end,
consistent with this paragraph.

(c) When reporting student performance under section 120B.36, subdivision 1, the
commissioner annually, beginning July 1, 2011, must report two core measures indicating
the extent to which current high school graduates are being prepared for postsecondary
academic and career opportunities:

(1) a preparation measure indicating the number and percentage of high school
graduates in the most recent school year who completed course work important to
preparing them for postsecondary academic and career opportunities, consistent with
the core academic subjects required for admission to Minnesota's public colleges and
universities as determined by the Office of Higher Education under chapter 136A; and

(2) a rigorous coursework measure indicating the number and percentage of high
school graduates in the most recent school year who successfully completed one or more
college-level advanced placement, international baccalaureate, postsecondary enrollment
options including concurrent enrollment, other rigorous courses of study under section
120B.021, subdivision 1a, or industry certification courses or programs.

When reporting the core measures under clauses (1) and (2), the commissioner must also
analyze and report separate categories of information using the nine student categories
identified under the federal 2001 No Child Left Behind Act and two student gender
categories of male and female, respectively, following appropriate reporting practices to
protect nonpublic student data.

(d) When reporting student performance under section 120B.36, subdivision 1, the
commissioner annually, beginning July 1, 2014, must report summary data on school
safety and students' engagement and connection at school. The summary data under this
paragraph are separate from and must not be used for any purpose related to measuring
or evaluating the performance of classroom teachers. The commissioner, in consultation
with qualified experts on student engagement and connection and classroom teachers,
must identify highly reliable variables that generate summary data under this paragraph.
The summary data may be used at school, district, and state levels only. Any data on
individuals received, collected, or created that are used to generate the summary data
under this paragraph are nonpublic data under section 13.02, subdivision 9.

new text begin (e) For purposes of statewide educational accountability, the commissioner must
identify and report measures that demonstrate the success of learning year program
providers under sections 123A.05 and 124D.68, among other such providers, in improving
students' graduation outcomes. The commissioner, beginning July 1, 2015, must annually
report summary data on:
