In this week’s Standard Press…

      About 80% of the school districts in Wisconsin do it. Now is it time for the Burlington Area School District to join in?

      What we’re taking about are operational referendums that allow school districts to exceed state revenue limits in order to run their schools at a level that meets the community’s desire.

District residents will have a chance to vote on the referendum during the April 4 election.

The story on the proposed school funding is the top story in this week’s Burlington Standard Press.

The newspaper will be available at local retail outlets on Thursday and subscribers will receive their copies with Thursday’s mail.
