School levies were a big issue on the ballot Tuesday in several Minnesota cities, with 83 of Minnesota's 377 school's asking voters to approve property tax increases.

Fifty-seven asked for money to fund general operating costs, while 26 districts wanted to fund new building and capital bond projects like technology upgrades.

The State Legislature boosted school funding by $485 million in the last session. But, many school officials say that's still not enough to keep up with inflation and growing class sizes.

At this point, the following school districts have all precincts reporting. The following candidates listed have the highest percentage of votes:
