Election Results

The Fond du Lac School District is extremely grateful for the enormous community support that will lead to a most exciting future in the District and greater community!  Both referendum questions were approved by voters on April 2, 2019 and that support will help us transform the District for kids, staff, families, and the community for decades to come. 

Below are the results:

Thank you for your desire to learn more about the District Facility Referendum 2019. On this page, you will find numerous resources that will help you learn more about our current state and potential future state of our school buildings. The District worked with Bray Architects and C.D. Smith Construction to complete a facility study which outlined needs for the future.

In the fall, a community survey was conducted, indicating that a majority of Fond du Lac’s residents would support a referendum in the $90 million range. Using that figure, Board members reviewed information provided by the architects and contractors related to the scope of need within our buildings. Upon review, Board members and school district administrators prioritized areas with the greatest need to arrive at $91.5 million for the three key areas described below in question one.  


After a December 17 Special Meeting of Board of Education Vote, the Fond du Lac School District will be placing two referendum questions, totaling $98.5 million, on the April 2, 2019 ballot.


Question #1 will ask the community to approve $91.5 million in funding to address various needs at the schools related to three main focal areas: improving safety and security; upgrading building exterior by replacing roofs, windows and doors; and updating building systems related to heating, ventilation, electrical and plumbing.

Question #2 will ask the community to approve $7 million in funding to add air conditioning in the eight buildings that currently do not have it. That would allow every school to provide the same climate-controlled learning environment for students and staff. Hence, a total of $98.5 million will be requested from the community.

This document serves as a summary of the proposed building infrastructure improvements and upgrades.
