LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Voters in the La Crosse school district will see an operating referendum on the Spring ballot.
The District is asking for $4.175-million per year for the next 5 years. The money would be used to continue current educational programs, expand technology, and repair district facilities.
The referendum would continue the same funding level as the current five year operating referendum, which is scheduled to end this June. A 'yes' vote on the referendum will *not* increase property taxes.
"It's a really important part of the work that we've been doing. I think we've been solid in the use of those funds and we've actually been able to make some really great things happen and provide some attractive programs, and opportunities for students and parents,” said La Crosse School District Superintendent Randy Nelson.
The La Crosse School District is hosting 2 community meetings on the operating referendum later this month:
- Saturday, March 17
Central High School auditorium
1801 Losey Boulevard South, La Crosse
- Thursday, March 22
Logan High School theater
1500 Ranger Drive, La Crosse
