Two area school districts had operating levy proposals on yesterday’s ballot.  

Voters in Adrian denied the school district’s request to revoke and increase its operating levy from $679.26 per pupil to $1,200 per pupil. The proposal failed by a vote of 518 “no” votes and 341 “yes” votes.

It was not clear by Tuesday’s press deadline the outcome of the Heron Lake-Okabena school district’s proposal to renew its operating levy at $1,603 per pupil.
