The Kiel Area School District Referendum was a school bond measure on the April 7 ballot in the Kiel Area School District which is in both Calumet and Manitowoc Counties. The referendum was brought to the ballot by the school board, and it sought to exceed state-set revenue limits by $650,000 per year over seven years. The additional funds would be used to maintain current levels of operations. Voters approved a similar measure in 1999, which is set to expire in 2009. The current measure seeks to replace those expiring funds. [1]

In 2008, the Kiel Area School District put three referenda on the ballot, all of which were defeated. You can read about them here, here and here.


Defeated, with 887 "yes" votes and 928 "no" votes. [2]
