Southern Door says yes to both school referendums

 The Southern Door School District passed both referendum questions on Tuesday night, with the one passing by the slimmest of margins.   The operational referendum which will allow the district budget to exceed the revenue limit by $975,000 annually for three years passed by a 60 to 40 percent margin, 2,648 votes in favor versus 1,737. 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 which will authorize general obligation bonds to be issued for $14.9 million barely was approved by a 51 to 49 percent margin, 2,220 votes in favor and 2,139 opposed. New construction will 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.
