NFDL School Board Approves Two Referendum Questions

The North Fond du Lac School Board has approved two questions for a spring referendum. The two questions on the April ballot will ask voters for permission to borrow a total of $29.5 million for improvements at the district’s schools. District Superintendent Aaron Sadoff says the first question for $27 million has to do with improvements at the Early Learning Center including construction of a two story addition and gymnasium. He says they would demolish older parts of the Early Learning Center and do some mild renovations of the newer parts. The second question for $2.5 million would make renovations and improvements at Bessie Allen Middle School and Horace Mann High School. He says they need air-conditioning in the Bessie Allen Gym. Other improvements would include parking, tennis courts, secure entry areas, maybe a school store, and their Tech-Ed program needs some help. He says at most if both questions pass it would raise the tax rate by 45 cents. He says it is currently at $9.64, but if the referendum passes the tax rate would still be comparable to districts their size in the area.
