A Reedsburg School District funding referendum, also known as "Question #1," was on the April 7 ballot in Reedsburg, which is in Sauk County. The measure is paired on the ballot with another Reedsburg funding referendum, "Question #2".

The measure would allow the district to exceed state-set revenue limits by $2,400,000 over four years to maintain current levels of operation.
