Ashland School District Building Project Moving Forward
District Reveals Final Project Plans at Community Meeting
ASHLAND, Wis. – Last April, a $34 million referendum passed allowing Ashland schools to complete a building project.
The tax levy for that project went into effect as expected, but due to declining enrollment, another tax levy was introduced to increase funding, upsetting some Ashland residents.
School district officials say the second tax can be removed after this school year when a new budget is made.
“There was a misunderstanding about the tax levy that this increase for this year was going to be a compounded increase, and that’s just not accurate,” says Ashland superintendent Keith Hilts.
The school district presented a final plan for their building project at a community meeting today.
The district plans to move forward with all the building plans included in the referendum.
