The Mohonasen District is asking residents to vote Tuesday, May 16 on a $64.47 million budget. The proposed budget allows for the continuation of student support programs and activities. This includes lower class size targets in grades K-6,  positions to support student mental health and a push for early literacy programs in Bradt Primary and Pinewood Intermediate schools. 

In addition to voting on the school budget, residents will be asked to consider a $48 million capital project. If approved by voters, the project will address three areas: health and safety; academic and programmatic improvements; and infrastructure upgrades. Each school will see major infrastructure upgrades and will be provided preventative maintenance to make sure the schools are in top condition for students and staff.

Another item on the ballot will be authorizing the purchase of two 24-passenger/five wheelchair buses, and two Suburbans at a total cost of $400,000. The purchase of these vehicles would have no impact on next year’s budget, and since the district pays off previous bus purchases each year, the net impact to Mohonasen taxpayers will be a decrease in 2024-25.

Residents will also elect two candidates to serve on the Mohonasen Board of Education. You can find more information on the candidates here
