Minnesota School Districts Working for Equitable, Adequate and Sustainable Education Funding.


 Welcome to SEE's Website


   

All public school children must have equal access to a high quality education regardless of where they live in Minnesota


Watch SEE's School Facilities Video

Read more in this position paper about overhauling school facilities funding so all school districts have the same opportunity to provide a quality, safe and healthy learning environment for their students.

The Governor's School Facilities Financing Work Group released recommendations that would fix the disparities funding.  SEE strongly encourages that the Legislature adopt the recommendations during the 2015 Legislative Session.  The two key components of the recommendations are:

  1. Give all school districts access to alternative facilities funding so school buildings and grounds can be responsibly and efficiently maintained
  2. Make school facilities levies and bonds more affordable in low-wealth districts by increasing equalization. 

See comparisons for each SEE district of the taxpayer cost for school facilities funding.  The Work Group's recommendations would significantly lower the taxpayer's cost in low-property wealth districts. 

Visit the Work Group page on the Minnesota Department of Education for more information.
