On August 8, 2022, the Board of Education approved an operational referendum question on the November November 8 ballot.
This information also included the results from the 2022 Community Engagement Survey. Overall, the community was supportive of all three operational referendum options that were presented in the survey.
The BOE unanimously voted to put a $24.9 million, non-recurring, operational referendum question on the November 8 ballot.
Throughout September and October, our district leaders and the BOE will be holding several community engagement sessions to continue to educate our community on how this operational referendum will help with increased costs in our day-to-day operations and continue to recruit and retain talented staff in our District.
Five community conversations will be open to all residents in the Middleton-Cross Plains Area. Two will be in-person, and three will be virtual.
During these conversations, led by Superintendent Dr. Dana Monogue, the community will receive more information about why an operational referendum is needed, what’s behind the District’s financial challenges, and how the District has saved more than $6 million over the past two years. Residents will also have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.
