Since 1994, Wisconsin schools have operated under a state-imposed revenue limit that restricts the amount of money they can receive each year, capping the amount of revenue available to fund programs and services for students. 

Under this “one size fits all” funding mechanism, most of the responsibility for funding Woods School rests on local property taxpayers.

Additionally, the state legislature has not provided revenue increases to keep pace with inflationary increases. There were no per-pupil funding increases in the most recent biennium (2 year) budget and only minimal increases for special education aid. Our revenue limit has not kept pace with inflation.

On Tuesday, November 8, residents will vote on a referendum question that, if approved, would help us address our financial needs at Geneva Joint 4-Woods School. Learn more:
