Voters approve most school referendums

Voters in 20 school districts across the state approved more than $140 million in supplemental school spending in referendums Tuesday, including the three largest initiatives on the spring election ballot.

The largest referendum on the ballot, a $70 million measure in Beloit, passed by 345 votes out of more than 5,400 cast.

A referendum for $17.5 million in Bloomer narrowly passed 981-954, while voters in Oshkosh passed a referendum of nearly $13 million by a margin of more than two-to-one.

Other districts to pass large referendums Tuesday included Hudson ($8.25 million), Watertown ($6.2 million) and Fall Creek ($5.1 million).

The largest referendum to fail on the spring ballot took place in Mukwonago, where voters shot down an $11.2 million measure by nearly 1,900 votes out of the 8,565 cast.

Seven other referendums also failed Tuesday, totaling nearly $30 million, including measures in the Parkview School District ($5 million), Barron Area ($3.95 million) and Altoona ($3.6 million).
