ONALASKA, Wis.(WEAU) District officials say the Onalaska School District referendum has passed on all three questions.

The first question would exceed the state’s revenue limit by $1.9 million for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years and then by $2.1 million the following three school years.

The second would exceed the revenue limit for technology upgrades by $500,000 for five years.

The third would allow the district to borrow $16 million for an addition and remodeling of Northern Hills Elementary school.

It would also allow the current gym at Irving Pertzsch Elementary School to be converted into classrooms and to build a new gym.

The results are as follows:

Question #1: 1,493- Yes
863- No

Question #2: 1,493- Yes
863- No

Question #3: 1,528- Yes
833- No

With all three questions passed, property taxes will be raised by $67 for a $100,000 home.
