Sturgeon Bay School District hopes it has put in the work ahead of time to ensure its referendum request will be approved by voters in April. The $16.84 million referendum will not just address priority maintenance projects and improve security, but also close Sunset Elementary School. Sturgeon Bay District Superintendent Dan Tjernagel feels like they have done a good job communicating their case to potential voters.
A release from Sturgeon Bay School District estimates the tax impact for this plan over the current levy is $147 for a home assessed at $100,000. The referendum question will be on the ballot on April 7th.
