La Crosse, WI (WXOW) -

The School District of La Crosse Board of Education needs your vote to authorize an operating referendum. 

The district will turn to voters to approve a $4.175 million per year referendum for maintaining educational programs, district facilities and replacing technology. The referendum will last five years starting at the end of the current agreement.

The vote will not increase local school taxes as it maintains the current levels passed five years ago. 

"It's been really trying to establish a solid trust with our community that not only are these dollars needed, but when we do provide them we use them for the right purposes and that's to support children and our schools," Superintendent Randy Nelson said.

The current referendum expires on June 30 2019. Voters will see the referendum on the April 3 election.
