Your school district tax bill explained  
The School Board certified its tax levy on Dec. 10. The property tax levy determines 22 percent of the district's total revenue. The largest source, 72 percent, is from the state of Minnesota. The district's property tax levy is increasing by 5.8 percent, but most properties in the school district will see no increase or a slight decrease to the school district portion of their tax bill.
