Madison voters have voted in support of two referenda from the Madison Metropolitan School District that totaled $350 million.
The referenda were separated into two parts – a $33 million operating referendum and a $317 million facilities referendum which will be used to renovate the district’s four main high schools and add a new elementary school.
“We’re incredibly grateful to the people of Madison for voting YES to invest in our public schools, students, and staff. Because of you, more sustainable and equitable schools are in sight,” said the Vote Yes 2 Invest campaign in a statement. “The work does not end here. We encourage everyone who cares about the future of our community to get involved with our local schools through the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools and, alongside our new Superintendent Dr. Carlton Jenkins, help us continue to shape a Madison that uplifts all its residents.”
The Vote Yes 2 Invest campaign is a coalition of community and business leaders, local families, educators, and education advocates working in support of the proposed Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) referenda.
