DODGE CENTER, Minn. - Dodge Center, West Concord, and Claremont voters will be asked 3 questions on the November ballot about an operating levy for Triton Public Schools.

Question 1 is whether they support $500 per student for operational costs such as transportation and class sizes, question 2 is to approve $150 per student for curriculum and technology, and question 3 is to vote for $100 per student to support the fine arts. Question 1 has to pass in order to pass number 2, and question 2 has to pass in order for question 3 to be passable.

"In a size district like we're in, the school is really the center of the community so... our community has been really supportive of our school district and we hope that they'll continue to support us," says Superintendent Brett Joyce.

The school is estimating that if all three questions are approved, the tax impact would be about $1 per day for a $200,000 home in the district.

The final informational meeting on the referendum is Monday, October 29th at West Concord City Hall.
