Nearly one-in-five school districts in Wisconsin are asking for more money this spring.
The Wisconsin Association of School Boards this week said 82 schools across the state have tax hike questions on the April ballot. That’s just under 20 percent of the 421 school districts across the state. Most of the referendum questions are for day-to-day operations, though some school districts are asking voters for more money to build or improve buildings. There were 81 school districts who asked for more money back in November.
