Why is the District requesting approval from the community to exceed the Revenue Limit?

Posted by:

Revenue limits defined by the State of Wisconsin are the driving force behind the district’s need to request additional revenue authority from the voters. A referendum is needed because of the State revenue limits and funding formula. The school district has been under revenue limits since 1993. The decline in school funding over the years has forced our district to make reductions from our expenditures to become more efficient. Although the District has made significant reductions to expenditures over the last ten years, the District is forced to examine a referendum to exceed State of Wisconsin imposed revenue limits.
