Sturgeon Bay School District hopes to override their current revenue limit by as much $3.6 million in 2021-2022 after announcing their plans to go to an operational referendum in April. The district would override their revenue limit in 2019-2020 by $2.9 million and $3.2 million in 2020-2021. That would mean a tax increase of $68 on a $100,000 by the end of the three-year referendum period. Superintendent Dan Tjernagel says the money will go to educational programming and keeping current staffing levels.
Sturgeon Bay School District has passed four operational referenda since 2007, including its last one in 2016. It will appear on the spring election ballot on April 2nd.
