WISN’s Mark Belling says it’s one of the dumbest things you can do in education, and Franklin, that includes you

Wisconsin residents voted today on 66 referendums in school districts throughout the state, including a $65 million referendum in the Chippewa Falls School District.

The Chippewa Falls funding would go toward replacing Stillson Elementary School, as well as construction and equipping of a classroom addition, capital improvements and repairs, technology upgrades, remodeling and site improvements at the middle school, and construction and equipping of a science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) lab addition, capital improvements and repairs and technology upgrades at the high school.

Other large school referendums on the April 3 ballot include:

  • D.C. Everest: $59.875 million to pay the cost of a district-wide school building and improvement program.
  • River Falls: $48 million (two referendums) to add elementary classroom space, create collaborative learning space and upgrade aging facilities.
  • Plymouth: $31.9 million for security improvements, construction of academic and athletic additions, remodeling and site improvements at Plymouth High School; security improvements, construction of gymnasium, cafeteria and academic additions, remodeling, roof replacement and HVAC upgrades at Parkview Elementary and Fairview Elementary Schools; and district-wide security and communications system upgrades.
  • Peshtigo: $30.9 million (two referendums) for constructing and equipping a new middle/ high school, including a two-station gymnasium, and constructing and equipping an additional gym station.

Other top referendums include: Howard-Suamico, $29.250 million; Sparta, $28.5 million; Beloit-Turner, $26.8 million; and Brown Deer, $25.9 million.
