Referendum

The Manitowoc Public School District Board of Education voted to approve placing an
operational referendum question on the April 3, 2018 ballot. Voters in MPSD will consider the request to allow the Board to exceed the state revenue limit by $3.5 million annually for a period of three years to support the District’s operations. 

The proposed question will allow for a decrease in school property taxes over the three year
period, with the first year seeing a 2.65% increase followed by -2.01% and -1.63% in years two and three.

If successful, the approved referendum will be directed to maintaining current programs and
educational opportunities while offering a wide range of courses, programs and services for
students; maintaining and updating district facilities and technology; providing all employees
with competitive wages and benefits; and providing essential employee training and
development.
