The Middleton-Cross Plains Exceed Revenue Limits Referendum was a school bond measure on the April 7 ballot in the Middleton-Cross Plains School District which is in Dane County. The referendum was brought to the ballot by the school board, and it sought to exceed state-set revenue limits by $1,975,000 per year after 2010. The additional funds would have been used to purchase new teaching materials in 2009, and to pay for the operating expenses of a new elementary school thereafter. The measure was defeated.

The district retained Bray Architects in June of 2008 to "provide programming, referendum support, architectural / engineering, and interior design services for the District's proposed building projects."[1]

This measure is one of three on the April 7 ballot in the Middleton-Cross Plains School District. The others are Middleton-Cross Plains School District Bond (2009) and Middleton-Cross Plains School District Referendum (2009).

Annual breakdown:
2009: $550,000
