a. Action on Preliminary Levy
Dr. Behle recommended that the board approve the maximum levy certification for the preliminary levy, which would include the maximum for Q-comp. The Q-Comp revenue would total $524,670. As a result of equalization, $209,605 would come from the levy and $315,064 would come from equalization aid. Board members clarified that the Q-comp levy could be reduced during the final levy certification at the board meeting on December 2, 2013. Becky Kemmetmueller reported that STMA Ed Minnesota overwhelmingly voted to participate in Q-Comp. She said that teachers are invested in becoming better teachers and that Q-Comp serves as the tool to support that investment. Ed Minnesota asked that the School Board commit to that investment by levying for Q-Comp. The final levy will be decided in December.
Lindquist/Steffens. Motion to authorize the maximum as levy as permitted by state law for 2013 payable in 2014. Motion carried.
