We Need Your Help to Contact Legislators

Let Our Minnesota Legislators Know:

  • It is fundamentally wrong for school districts that take care of students with the most needs to have less general education funds to pay for programs for all students.

  • Due to the inequities in special education funding, school districts such as Barnum Public Schools that do a great job with special education, are forced to do more with less for all students in the district.

  • In 2015, Barnum Public Schools was taking $427 per student ($336,361.00 total) from our general education funding to pay for mandated special education costs. In 2018, those cross-subsidy expenses were $661 per general education student ($486,191.00 total). 2019 information is not yet available. We need your help to get this corrected.

  • Cuts are imminent in future budgets if something is not done.
