Voters approve La Crosse school referendum

Voters approved the School District of La Crosse referendum in Tuesday’s election.

With 100% of precincts reporting, residents voted 4,147 to 1,990 in favor of the referendum, which is essentially a continuation of the one La Crosse taxpayers are already under.

The School District of La Crosse asked for $20.875 million over five years, or $4.175 million a year. About $3.35 million of that will pay for school programs and staff; $412,500 will go toward technology, and $412,500 will go toward building maintenance.
