MMSD Board of Education Approves 2020 Referendum Questions
Let’s make sure every Madison Public School is a place where every child thrives.

On July 13, 2020 the Board of Education approved two referendum questions for the Madison community to vote on in the November 3, 2020 election:  one for facilities and one for operating expenses.
The facilities referendum would include:

  • Renovations in MMSD’s four main high schools;
  • Capital maintenance;
  • A new location for Capital High School; and
  • A new elementary school in the Rimrock area.

The operating referendum would allow MMSD to:

  • Improve disparities in access to technology;
  • Attract and retain high quality staff; and
  • Address long-term equity issues while reducing the achievement gap.
