The Middleton-Cross Plains School District 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 issue debt in the amount of $33,980,000. The bond monies would be used to remodel, rebuild and equip Kromrey Middle School. 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 Exceed Revenue Limits Referendum (2009). None of the three measures passed.
