Rhinelander School District Going To Referendum In November

Jul 10, 2018

Credit School District of Rhinelander

Rhinelander school district voters this fall will make a funding decision after Monday's board meeting.

The school board approved asking voters for a four-year referendum totaling $4.25 million per year.

A memo circulated by Superintendent Kelli Jacobi said the current three year referndum passed in 2016 will expire. That referendum asked for $5 million a year for three years. Jacobi says the district's fund balance is in a healthy position and the fund would offset part of the request.

The legislature passed changes as to when a referendum vote can be done.

The board votedĀ  5-2 to authorize the vote for this November.
