Sturgeon Bay School Board Moves Forward With Referendum

The Sturgeon Bay School Board will go to the voters in April, asking permission to override the budget revenue cap on a non-recurring basis over the next three years. The board acted on a resolution calling for a referendum during the spring election on the request during its regular meeting Wednesday evening. The current three-year revenue limit override for operational purposes expires at the end of the 2015/16 fiscal year. If approved, the budget would be exceeded by $1.9 million for the 2016/17 school year only, $2.25 million for the 2017/18 school year only, and, $2.7 million for the 2018/19 school year only. The dollars are intended to provide educational programming for students. Supporters of the revenue cap override request say failure to do so will lead to massive cuts that could cripple the district’s ability to provide a quality educational experience for its students.
