Referendum survey

The Deerfield School District has sent out a survey to district residents, to gauge interest in a possible November 2020 referendum.

The district currently has an operating referendum, which went into effect in 2016 and sunsets June 30, 2020.

This referendum allows the school district to exceed revenue limits and levy additional funds from taxpayers by $400,000 per year, for the length of the referendum.

The survey will ask residents whether they would support a new operating referendum, and to give input on future budget decisions.

The deadline to submit the survey is Monday, July 6. Residents can receive the survey either in the mail or online. They can request extra surveys or online access codes by calling (608) 764-5431 extension 1148.
