There are 426 public school districts in Wisconsin, and each is entitled, through the action of its local Board of Education, to place school district referendum questions before its voters under certain circumstances. School referendum questions differ from school referendum elections in Wisconsin. Bond referendums in Wisconsin allow the board of education in a Wisconsin school district to ask voters to approve any debt exceeding $1,000,000 where as a school referendum questions allows the board to ask voters to exceed the districts spending cap.

In 2008, 146 school referenda have (or will be on 11/4/08) been put to the people. 49 of them passed, 49 failed, and 46 have yet to be voted on.
