Middleton-Cross Plains referendum

Postby Beaver » Thu Oct 11, 2018 10:20 am

If you live in Middleton-Cross Plains the back of your ballot will have these questions. They want to build a new school and update some current schools to keep up with the overgrowth of new housing and apartments there.


The Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District will ask voters to approve two referendum questions on the Nov. 6 ballot to address critical issues in the District. If approved by voters, the solution will lead to:

Build a new elementary school adjacent to Pope Farm Conservancy
Renovate and expand Middleton High School; Clark Street Community School will be included in the new high school construction
Add a cafeteria and renovate Park Elementary School
Convert the current CSCS building into a 4K-early childhood site

actual wording for Question 1:
Shall the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District, Dane County, Wisconsin be authorized to issue pursuant to Chapter 67 of the Wisconsin Statutes, general obligation bonds in an amount not to exceed $138,900,000 for the public purpose of paying the cost of capital improvements of a school building and improvement program consisting of construction and equipping a new elementary school; construction and equipping of an addition to the high school and related remodeling; demolition of a portion of the existing high school facility and reconstruction of the facility; construction and equipping of a cafeteria addition to Park Elementary School; and remodeling of the current Clark Street Community School for use as an early learning site for the District?

actual wording for Question 2:
Shall the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District, Dane County, Wisconsin be authorized to exceed the revenue limit specified in Section 121.91, Wisconsin Statutes, by $2,800,000 for the 2019-20 school year and by an additional $2,000,000 (for a total of $4,800,000) for the 2020-21 school year and thereafter, for recurring purposes, including staffing costs and other operational expenses associated with new and expanded facilities, technology upgrades, safety and security upgrades, and equipment?"
