Southern Door hosts first referendum listening session Tuesday

You have your first of two opportunities to learn more about the two Southern Door School District referendum questions on the ballot Tuesday evening. In August, the Southern Door School District Board unanimously approved the questions for the operational referendum and capital referendum. 


The operational referendum would allow the district budget to exceed the revenue limit by $975,000 annually for three years. These funds would be used for non-recurring expenses such as student support services, updating curriculum materials, maintaining current programming and technology, and wages. The capital referendum would authorize general obligation bonds to be issued for $14.9 million. Under the plans currently posted on the district’s website, new construction would include an indoor practice facility, a relocated weight and fitness room, and a greenhouse. The current district office building would also be torn down to make way for additional parking in front of the school building. The district office would then be relocated to what is now the fitness center. Thanks to the district’s fiscal consciousness over the years, approving the two referendum questions would not increase the mill rate over current levels, according to Superintendent Chris Peterson. 


The open house will take place at 6 p.m. inside the high school library tonight (10/4/22). The district will host a second open house at the same time and location on October 24th.
