OASD Referendum

GET OUT AND VOTE!!!  For more information on the Oshkosh Area School District Referendum, please visit the Oshkosh Referendum website for more details!!!

On November 3, 2020, Oshkosh Area School District (OASD) residents will be able to vote on two school funding requests: one to renew existing operating funds, and another to fund school facility improvements. The requests align with OASD’s strategic plan and its long-range facilities plan - both of which were developed with extensive community input.

Q1: Renew $7.95 million in annual operating funds previously approved by the community in 2014 and 2016 with no tax increase. Funds would help enable the district to continue to advance its community-developed strategic plan, while following its guiding principle of students first by sustaining academic programs, technology for learning, and student support services. 

Q2: Invest $107 million in capital funds to advance the first phase of our long-range facilities plan, by building a new middle school and a new elementary school, closing three aging/outdated facilities, enhancing school safety and security, and addressing deferred maintenance and infrastructure needs. The result would be consolidated and modern schools that are more efficient, effective and equitable - with fewer school buildings to maximize use and efficiency.
