The Paris J1 School District Referendum was a school bond measure on the April 7 ballot in the Paris J1 School District, which is in Kenosha and Grant Counties. The referendum was brought to the ballot by the school board, and it sought to exceed state-set revenue limits by $600,000 per year. What the additional funds would be used for has not been specified.

After the April measure failed to pass, the school board voted unanimously to make a second attempt. There will be a special election held on June 9, 2009, where the voters will be asked to approve $1,515,000 over the state-set revenue limits by 2012. The additional funds would be used for operating expenses.
