Wisconsin Rapids voters to see two school referendum questions in April

Wisconsin Rapids, Wis. (WAOW) -- Wisconsin Rapids voters will see a new school referendum on their April ballot.

Question one would ask voters to approve $2 million every year for the next five years to address technology and curriculum updates in schools.

Question two would ask voters to approve $34 million for facility updates, including security upgrades, a school resource center at Lincoln High School and a gymnasium at THINK Academy.

District Superintendent Craig Broeren said the timing is perfect to pose this to voters.

"Financially speaking for the school district and the community, the timing is very good for an additional bond issue to be approved because based on our projections, if both of these questions were approved, there would be little or no tax impact locally," he said.

The district plans to hold information sessions to answer voters' questions.
