Voters Reject $425 Million in School Referenda

Voters rejected $425 million in 36 school referenda Tuesday, while 34 referenda totaling $239 million passed. DPI did not have results on two referenda by this afternoon.

Although nearly half of the 72 referenda on the ballot passed, those victories totaled just over a third of the record $663 million requested by 52 school districts.

Voters rejected multiple referenda in the Elmbrook School District ($109 million), Franklin ($78 million), Watertown ($35 million), and in both the St. Croix Central and Lake Mills school districts at more than $25 million each.

The second-largest school funding request, in the New Richmond school district, was approved at $93 million. A second New Richmond item, at $2.5 million, narrowly failed. Voters also passed large referenda in Spooner ($40 million), Mukwonago ($24 million), and Greendale ($15 million).
