School districts rely on state and local funding to support and maintain their schools. On November 5, 2019, Fridley Public Schools will ask its community to approve an operational levy referendum. Funds from operational levies are used to support academic programs for students, staffing and student support services such as social emotional learning and mental health services.
Referendum Question: Revoke the district's existing referendum revenue authorization of $187.43 per pupil and replace it with a new authorization of $497.43 per pupil. The proposed referendum would increase each year by the rate of inflation and be applicable for 10 years.
Fridley High School celebrated its homecoming week from October 7-11, 2019. The Fridley High School student council organized a number of activities and dress-up days for students to participate in throughout the week. On Friday, October 11, the week concluded with a pep fest and coronation, which crowned seniors Josiah Johnson and Maritza Leiva as 2019 homecoming king and queen. Homecoming royalty also included seniors Chewy Lor, Coco Nelson, Eli Paton and BaoBai Xiong; juniors Lucas Gerhard and Alayna Markuson; sophomores Jacob Nguyen and Eila Rose; and freshmen Nick Richard and Amay Ruiz Barrios. That evening, through sleeting and cold weather conditions, the Fridley Tigers varsity football team won its homecoming game, defeating the St. Croix Lutheran Crusaders 49-0.

Fridley Public Schools will have an operating levy on the November 5, 2019 ballot.

The current operating levy is set to expire in 2025 and the district will ask its voters to revoke and replace it with a new levy authorization.
