MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin voters have approved dozens of school referendums for construction and, in some cases, to keep schools operating.

Forty-four school referendums were on ballots statewide Tuesday.

A tally by The Associated Press found 31 passed and 12 failed. The results of one vote weren't immediately available Wednesday.

Press-Gazette Media reports Green Bay voters approved about $20 million to update six middle and elementary schools.

Denmark schools received approval to increase spending by $800,000 to $900,000 for each of the next three school years to avoid cutting programs or increasing class sizes.

Referendums that failed included two questions in Sheboygan Falls. Sheboygan Press Media reports voters rejected requests for about $30 million to build a new middle school and an auditorium.
