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

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.

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

(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.

Nonresident tuition rate; other costs.

deleted text begin (a) For fiscal year 2006,
when a school district provides instruction and services outside the district of residence,
board and lodging, and any tuition to be paid, shall be paid by the district of residence.
The tuition rate to be charged for any child with a disability, excluding a pupil for whom
tuition is calculated according to section 127A.47, subdivision 7, paragraph (d), must be
the sum of (1) the actual cost of providing special instruction and services to the child
including a proportionate amount for special transportation and unreimbursed building
lease and debt service costs for facilities used primarily for special education, plus (2)

expenditures, and pupil transportation, attributable to that pupil for the portion of time
the pupil receives special instruction and services outside of the regular classroom. If
the boards involved do not agree upon the tuition rate, either board may apply to the
commissioner to fix the rate. Notwithstanding chapter 14, the commissioner must then set
a date for a hearing or request a written statement from each board, giving each board
at least ten days' notice, and after the hearing or review of the written statements the
commissioner must make an order fixing the tuition rate, which is binding on both school
districts. General education revenue and referendum equalization aid attributable to a
