Most Twin Cities area schools districts show deficits for 2024-25

A new survey of school districts in the Twin Cities region, Rochester and Duluth finds more than 70 percent are expecting budget shortfalls in the upcoming school year. The survey, which was conducted by the Association of Metropolitan School Districts, shows districts face more than $300 million in shortfalls for the 2024-25 school year, with nearly two-thirds of that gap centered in Minneapolis and St. Paul public schools.
