Howards Grove

Voters narrowly rejected the $35 million referendum that would construct a new 96,500 sq. ft. middle school. The proposed project also included updates to both the elementary and high school.

The district's estimated breakdown was that the referendum would cost $158 per year for homes valued at $100,000.


Meanwhile, the first Kohler School District referendum garnered 70% approval while the second also passed with 59.1% of the vote. The two referendums, which can be viewed more as phases of one larger project, totals more than $20 million in renovations. 

Project 1 will include the construction of a new public/school library and parking, expanded student drop-off/pick-up areas and the first phase of enhancements to Ebben Field and other outdoor athletic facilities. Project 2 will complete the athletic facilities construction.

According to the district, neither referendum will increase the tax mill rate.
