Bangor School District asks to exceed revenue limits


BANGOR, WI (WXOW)—Bangor residents will vote on a request from the school district Tuesday.

The district wants to exceed revenue limits by $600,000 a year for the next three years.

Dave Laehn, District Administrator, said this referendum is all about maintenance.

They're not looking to add anything new, he said, they need this money to maintain the programs Bangor already has.

"If we're fortunate enough to have this referendum pass it would maintain services and programs we have which means we can maintain quality staff and maintain initiatives we're trying," Laehn said.

Initiatives like having iPads in classrooms for third through eleventh grade students.

If it doesn't pass they'll have to make cuts, but they haven't decided where yet.

"We'll have to look at all programs and see where we can cut that will least affect kids," Laehn said. "But any cuts you make are going to affect kids."

Laehn said the bottom line is Bangor has a beautiful new school, great faculty and wonderful students and they'd like to keep it that way.

"This is a very supportive community," Laehn said. "Always has with our school. I would ask what type of school do they want in the community? Do they want this type of school they've had in the past in terms of quality education for our kids?"
