On November 7, 2017, Northfield Public Schools residents will be asked to vote on two important election questions.

The first question will revoke the current operating levy of $1,497.17 and replace it with an operating levy increased by $470.15 to $1,967.32 per student for 10 years with an inflationary factor included. The second question, contingent on the passage of the first question, would authorize the District to sell $109 million in bonds to be paid for over 25 years for the purpose of implementing the Master Facilities Plan.
