Oakfield Schools Referendum

Oakfield School District voters next month will be asked to approve a 3-year referendum that would allow the district to exceed its revenue limits by $900,000 a year for operating expenses. District Superintendent Pam Yoder says it would succeed the current referendum that allows them to exceed their operating expenses by $700,000 a year. The new referendum if approved would begin for the 2014-15 school year. She says the school board had considered asking for more, but will also be making cuts even if the referendum passes. She says declining enrolment and cuts in state aid have had a huge impact on the district’s funding. She says since 2009 state aid has been cut more than $850,000. The Oakfield School District has a link to more information about the referendum at their website.

506 students and an added cost of 900,000 per year? Thats over $700 per student over the current levy limit, which the district shows at 3 million dollars per year. Is the math correct here, a total revenue of 3.9 million per year for 506 students? Over $7700 per student per year? How does that compare to the other districts in the area?

State has reduced funding drastically. You will see more referendums for other districts in the future. Less more for public school and more for school voucher program. Really? Support the schools, the children are our future.
