Voters in La Crosse to decide on referendum in April


LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) -- An area school district is trying to pass a nearly $21 million referendum.

The referendum in the La Crosse School District would increase the revenue limit by about $4 million each year from the 2014-2015 school year until the 2018-2019 school year.

The referendum would fund educational programs, technology updates, security improvements and help keep class sizes small.

It would be a continuation of the current referendum that expires june 30th.

If the referendum passes, property taxes won’t increase.

“We know that having a good learning environment is important, and at the heart of that is a safe learning environment. Where students feel safe where they feel comfortable where they feel they’re in a strong relationship with teachers, and other children in the classroom,” said superintendent Randy Nelson.

Voters will decide on the referendum on April 1.

The La Crosse School District will hold a meeting about the referendum on Saturday, March 15 at 10 a.m. at Logan High School.

Another meeting will be held Thursday, March 20 at 6 p.m. at the Hogan Administrative Center.
