Cambridge School District explains referendum questions

Posted:

CAMBRIDGE (WKOW) -- The school district of Cambridge has a big vote coming up on November 6. Wednesday night at a listening session, officials outlined the two questions the district is asking voters to approve.

It's asking for more than $5 million over the next four years to pay for operational costs and technology upgrades and then another $4.6 million for repairs and upgrades, mostly at the high school which was built in 1969.

The district's superintendent says it won't only be the students who benefit if the referendum questions are approved. 

"Even if residents vote yes and yes for each question, we anticipate that taxes will still come down, which is an unusual position to be in, but a fortunate position to be in," Superintendent Bernie Nikolay said.

That's because the district has some debt coming off the books. Nikolay says so far, the response has been positive.
