Two Door County Superintendents have expressed their appreciation for the approval of referendum questions by voters in their districts Tuesday. In an open letter, Sturgeon Bay Superintendent Joe Stutting said the referendum’s positive outcome will allow the district to continue to offer a great, well-rounded educational program to all students. Stutting paid tribute to the core committee that worked to get the word out about the need for the revenue cap override and noted that the outcome would not have been possible without the support of the board of education. He acknowledged that the board will be challenged over the next 3 years to find a solution to the funding formula and provide relief for taxpayers. Stutting pledged to do his part to promote a change in school funding and look for local solutions.
