(WLUK) -- Three Northeast Wisconsin school districts will ask voters for more money next Tuesday.


The Freedom Area School District has two questions on its referendum. One question asks voters for $66.7 million to build a new high school, renovate the elementary and intermediate/middle schools and make other improvements. The other question asks for $740,000 per year over a five-year span for operating costs for the new high school.

According to the district, if both questions pass, the owner of a $100,000 house would pay $322 more per year in taxes between 2020 and 2025.


In Florence County, school leaders are asking for $1.25 million per year over three years for continuing operations and maintenance. According to the district, this would raise taxes by $53 per year for the owner of a $100,000 home.


Princeton schools are asking voters to approve a revenue limit increase of $475,000 per year for five years. The district expects taxes to remain steady or decrease slightly. If the referendum is not approved, the district says taxes would decrease more.
