Voters in the Blooming Prairie school district will go to the polls to answer three questions. The first would ask approval to revoke the district's existing voter approved referendum revenue authorization of $436 per pupil and to approve an authorization of $436 per pupil which would be subject to an annual increase at the rate of inflation. If renewed, the levy will bring in $790,000. The second question asks for approval of an additional $100 per pupil for technology purposes and would bring in $74,000 and question 3 asks for approval of an additional $60 per pupil which would bring in $35,000. In order for questions 2 and 3 to be approved, question 1 must be approved.
