Upcoming Referendum Public Informational Meetings
The School District of Wabeno Area will be holding two more public informational meetings regarding the upcoming referendums on April 4, 2017: March 15, 2017 at 7:00 PM and March 30, 2017 at 6:30 PM in the Jr/Sr High auditorium. Residents of the School District of Wabeno Area are encouraged to attend.
Welcome to the School District of Wabeno Area! We take pride in our school district and the opportunities we provide our children to grow and excel in life. We have highly qualified educators who are motivated to educate the whole child and help them succeed in achieving their life goals.
We are also proud of the resources we are able to provide for our community members. We have several community members take advantage of our school buildings throughout the school year. People use our buildings to enhance physical fitness by walking the halls, using our weight room and gyms. Several people also use our school facilities for craft fairs, community theater events, general meeting spaces, open gym times, Forest County Potawatomi student group activities, vocational education opportunities, and Girl Scout and Boy Scout meetings, in addition to other community uses. The school district is honored to provide these opportunities for the community.
The school district is asking for your help in maintaining these programs and resources for our students and community members. We have two referendum questions on the April 2017 ballot to exceed the revenue limits to maintain these opportunities. The first question will ask the tax payers of the School District of Wabeno Area for $1, 600,000 each year for five years. Our current referendum of $750,000 is expiring this school year. The district is seeking this amount of revenue for operational expenses to maintain these programs and resources. The second question will ask the tax payers of the school district for $300,000 to develop a fabrication lab, purchase equipment for the lab, and to assist in covering instructor costs for the first year this is implemented into the school district.
Thank you for taking time to visit our referendum informational page. If you would like more information, please contact the district administrator, school board members or review the referendum information on this webpage.
