Referendum For LG-Genoa Schools
The Badger High School District plans to place $6.75 million on an April referendum. According to the LGRN, residents in the Lake Geneva-Genoa City Union School District approved plans on December 14th to place the referendum question on the next election ballot in the Spring. The funding would be used for various projects, such as a new roof at Badger High, upgrades to technology, renovations to the kitchen and gymnasium, auditorium, and portions of the building from the 1958 construction, as well as the cafeteria, lobby and restrooms. The school board approved exceeding the limits of the spending by $750,000 as part of the referendum. This would also be used to help pay for upgrades. In addition, there are plans from the Lake Geneva Joint No. 1 School District to exceed by $750,000 to help pay for programs, as well as upgrades to three elementary schools and Lake Geneva Middle School. Union School District has seen more than a half million dollars in staffing cuts this year, while the Joint No. 1 District more than a million.
