The Brodhead School District will present a facility (bond) referendum on April 2. If voters approve the facility (bond) referendum, it gives the school board the authority to proceed with the work outlined in the referendum question. The District is asking for $17,485,000, to be repaid over a maximum of 21 years.

The actual referendum asks the following: “Shall the School District of Brodhead, Green and Rock Counties, Wisconsin be authorized to issue pursuant to Chapter 67 of the Wisconsin Statutes, general obligation bonds in an amount not to exceed $17,485,000 for the public purpose of paying the cost of a school building and facility improvement project consisting of: construction of additions, renovations, including for secure entrances, window replacements, bathroom upgrades, capital maintenance, building infrastructure and site improvements at Albrecht Elementary School and Brodhead Middle School; construction of an addition and renovations at Brodhead High School, including for a secure entrance and office; and acquisition of furnishings, fixtures and equipment?”
