LA CROSSE, Wis., (March 3, 2023) – A great education prepares our kids for a successful future. Our students today are the builders, entrepreneurs, and leaders of tomorrow. Providing the best possible education is crucial for our kids’ future so that our whole community is successful.

On April 4, the School District of La Crosse is pursuing a six-year increase and extension of the 2018 operational referendum. Since 2004 the La Crosse community has supported four operational referenda, with the 2018 question approved by 75% of voters. These referenda have allowed the district to provide key student services, address critical operational maintenance, and provide essential resources for staff.

We are grateful for the community’s continued support of public education.

We recently sent a referendum informational mailer to all box holders in the city of La Crosse. You should be receiving a copy shortly if you haven’t already. For your convenience, we’ve also included a digital copy below. The information we’ve shared includes what an operational referendum will provide for our students and schools, why the district is seeking an operational referendum, and how the investment will impact taxpayers.

Please make your voice heard and vote on Tuesday, April 4.
