Planning for Our Future

The Oregon School District has a proud tradition of working with our community to plan for the future of our children. In November 2022, community members voted to support a recurring operational referendum to retain and attract excellent educators to the District. This page includes information about the referendum.

November 2022 Operational Referendum

On August 22, after months of discussion, financial & budget analysis and community engagement, the Board unanimously voted to approve a $11.4 million operational referendum on the November 8th ballot to ensure that we continue to have the best educator in every classroom. The referendum is recurring. Here is a recording of the School Board discussion and vote (starts at 18:14)

What the referendum does for our kids:

  1. Keep the best educators in our District by offering competitive salaries & benefits that keep up with inflation.
  2. Maintain class sizes similar to what they are today.
  3. Continue providing mental health services and staff positions paid for with one-time ESSER funds.
  4. Provide the necessary ongoing operational funds to meet the needs of our kids and families.

Tax Impact

The chart below shows the additional tax increase each year, over three years. The amount is $11.4M in Year 3. It is a recurring referendum; the amount stays at $11.4M each year thereafter. The Oregon School Board can reduce the tax amount should the State of Wisconsin return to providing additional ongoing funds.
