Marshfield voters pass school referendum

Posted:
MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

Marshfield voters passed a $10 million referendum for their schools.

That referendum passed 56 percent to 44 percent, and the money will be spent over four years.

It's a smaller amount than the current referendum that was about to expire.

School officials say this is a more efficient way to keep key classes and activities open.

The superintendent says she's grateful for the support of Marshfield voters.

"It's a wonderful sign that our community endorses the quality programs that we're offering our students and is giving us the strong message that we should maintain those programs," said Peg Geegan, Marshfield School District Superintendent.

School officials say without this referendum, they would have had to cut staff and programs like band and AP classes.
