Door County League of Women Voters Supports School Referendums

 

What the Door County League of Women Voters would really like to see is an improved statewide system for funding public schools, but for now Co-President Shirley Senarighi says they’ll just have to advocate for referendums. Four of Door County’s five school districts are asking voters on April 2 to allow them to exceed state revenue caps that were originally put into place in 1993.

Gibraltar is the only district without a referendum question on the ballot, but that’s because voters passed one November 6. Senarighi says people often ask why the LWV campaigns for school referendums but not other referendums or individual candidates.

Through a nationwide study of public school funding, conducted by local and state leagues, the National League of Women Voters came to a consensus that nationally the group could advocate public funding for schools.

Last month the Door County LWV assisted 37 high school students register to vote by providing the students with the proper forms and stamped envelopes addressed to the appropriate clerk.

 

What voters in each school district will see on their ballots next Tuesday:

Sevastopol – $4.25 million over three years; $1.15 million in the 2013-14 school year, $1.35 million in 2014-15 and $1.75 million in 2015-16.

Southern Door – $3.08 million over three years; $700,000 in the 2013-14 school year, $1.07 million in 2014-15 and $1.31 million in 2015-16.

Sturgeon Bay – $3.9 million over three years; $1 million in the 2013-14 school year, $1.3 million in 2014-15 and $1.6 million in 2015-16.

Washington Island – $872,000 over two years; $391,000 in the 2013-14 school year and $481,000 in 2014-15.
