An open house on the Southern Door School referendum in November is planned for Thursday, October 11th, from 5:30 to 7PM. In August, the board of education approved two resolutions authorizing referendum questions on the November 6th ballot. Voters in the district will be asked to support the acquisition of $6.2 million to pay for safety and security upgrades, renovation of instructional areas, and infrastructure repairs. The board says the request is tax neutral, meaning, if approved, taxpayers would not see an increase to the school portion of their taxes over the current levels. The second question asks for permission to exceed the state imposed revenue limit, on a one time basis, by $450,000 for the 2019/2020 school year. The dollars are intended to sustain educational opportunities and services for students by maintaining class sizes and course offerings. In the coming weeks, the Southern Door School District will be providing more information on the referendum. Another open house on the topic is planned for Monday, October 22nd.
