The Southern Door County School District Board of Education unanimously voted to place an operational referendum on the November 3, 2020 ballot. This means that voters will find one question on the ballot from the Southern Door County School District. 
 
It requests authorization from the voters for an additional $975,000 per year, for each of three years, starting in November 2020. There is no tax increase projected to taxpayers for this referendum. 
 
An operating referendum, like the one on the ballot, supports the annual costs of operating the District. Specifically, if approved by the voters, this operating referendum will help fund:

Student support services, including mental health;
Updating curriculum;
Maintaining technology equipment;
Maintaining programs and services;
Wages to attract and retain staff.
