Referendum Information for the April 4, 2023 Election
  • April 4, 2023 Operational Referendum

    On Tuesday, January 17th, the Board of Education unanimously voted to approve the School District of Fort Atkinson going to referendum on April 4, 2023. An operational referendum is necessary due to:

    • Sunset of the current $3M non-recurring referendum 
    • Declining enrollment
    • Lack of State Allowable Increases
    • Loss of One-Time Federal Funding
    • Inflationary Impacts
    • Increasingly Competitive Labor Market
