EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- The Eau Claire Area School District held the first of four referendum sessions Monday night at Memorial High school.

Voters will go to the polls on November 8th to decide whether the school district will get an additional $5.8 million dollars a year for 15 years. Superintendent Dr. Mary Ann Hardebeck attended the session along with school board president Chris Hambuch-Boyle.

A chance for parents to learn more about how the money would be spent in the district, if the referendum passes.

Hal Snow says, "I'm very interested in how the funds will be used of course, how it's going to affect the district, teachers, the kids and how we are going to move forward. We have a lot of needs, debt, and I'm interested in where we go from here."

The next information session will be held next Tuesday, October 18th at Meadowview Elementary. For a full list of all the sessions, visit
