Appleton Area School District holds referendum walkthrough

The referendum vote will take place on February 18th.
APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) - In just over a month, voters in Appleton will face a $30 million question in the form of a referendum posed by the Appleton Area School District.

The referendum would provide funding to update schools in the district, dozens of which are more than 50 years old.

The school board held a walk-through Monday evening at east high school, designed to show parents and community members exactly why they need to approve the referendums.

Officials say they need to re-design entry-ways at numerous buildings for safety reasons, and they need large science and technical education upgrades across the district.

“Tonight was a great opportunity here at east high for our science department," assistant superintendent Ben Vogel says, "and our technology education department to take people from our community through those areas and see how it currently looks and how they'd like it to look and with a successful referendum we could make those changes.”

The referendum vote will take place on February 18th.
