In the Cambria - Friesland School District, our Vision is to educate ALL through educating each student as one.” Cambria-Friesland School District Spring Referendum to Exceed the Revenue Limit Why is the district going to referendum and what does it mean to our students, school, and you? The Cambria-Friesland School District Board of Education during the December 22nd regular meeting of the Board, approved a Spring 2015 referendum. Provided here are several common questions regarding referendums and why more and more school districts in the state of Wisconsin are turning to their communities with referendums. ● What is a referendum and when is the vote for it?? It’s a question a village, township, municipality, or school can ask to the community for a direct decision. In this case the School District of Cambria-Friesland is asking the community for $1,400,000 to exceed the State Revenue Limit. The vote is April 7, 2015. ● What are Revenue Limits? In Fall, 1993, the Wisconsin legislature instituted a limit or control on the revenue a school district is entitled to receive each year. The control applies to revenue received from two sources: general state aid and local levies. The limits have significant impact on district finances, as general state aids and the General Fund (Fund 10) tax levy can comprise anywhere from 70-90% of a district's total General Fund revenues. ● How does the State of Wisconsin determine Revenue Limits for school districts, and how does this affect our local taxes? The revenue limits are determined predominantly through two factors: ● Student enrollment ● Local land valuation Local levies increase when schools experience declining enrollment, and/or a decrease land valuation. Also a stagnant enrollment can result in a higher school levy. ● How did the district come up with the $1,400,000 price tag? This fall the district hired R.W. Baird to develop a budget forecast model for the district. R.W. Baird works with hundreds of school districts around the state in budget forecasting. The forecast model showed that over the next three years the district will experience significant budget shortages. The $1,400,000 is the difference between the projected revenues and projected expenditures. ● Why can’t the school “tighten its belt” and find cost savings or budget reductions? The district has an approximate operating budget of $4.8 million dollars. This “tightening of the belt” would result in a 29% budget reduction. The effect would be a significant impact in every aspect of school operations. The quality and number of instructional, curricular, and co-curricular offerings for our students would be greatly diminished. ● What about consolidation with another school district? Has that been considered? Yes. The administration of Cambria-Friesland has met and continues to meet with our neighbor and counterpart to the east, the Randolph School District. Consolidation is a complicated process and both districts agree that our relationship needs to be begin with sharing of instructional services and programs. Both districts understand we can offer our students more through shared instruction, with a cost savings for each district. Whether or not this leads to the two districts consolidating remains to be seen, but it is a good first step if each district wants to revisit that conversation. ● What will happen to my property taxes if the referendum is passed? The school district portion of your property taxes will go up for the next three years. The mill rate determines the levy for each school district. The charts below show a six year historical picture of the mill rate and levy for Cambria-Friesland Schools as well as neighboring school districts. The mill rate represents how much a property owner would have levied based on every $1,000. In other words in 2014-2015 a property owner in Cambria-Friesland would pay $943 dollars in property taxes toward the school district if they owned a $100,000 home or $1,886 if they owned a $200,000 home.

This is a three year “Non-recurring” referendum. Will the district have to go to referendum again in three years? Most likely yes. Remember the amount of money a district can levy is “capped” by the Revenue Limit, and that is based upon student enrollment and district land valuation. Unless the district would have a large increase in student population, and/or land valuation the amount allowed under current law would result in a projected budget deficit of $725,000 and $866,000 for the years 2018-2019 and 2019-2020. ● What are the projected differences in school district property taxes for a successful referendum and a failed referendum? Below are the current forecast projections. These are only projections and shouldn’t be seen as “hard numbers”. Forecast projections allow a district to predict and prepare for budget issues. Provided are the numbers for the years the district has operated or is projected to operate in a budget deficit. That number is presented in red. Year 2013-2014 2014-2015 2015-2016 2016-2017 2017-2018 2018-2019 2019-2020 Successful Referendum 11.32 $82,713 9.42 $248,371 $10.60 $11.14 $11.83 $8.78 $725,000 $8.69 $866,000 Failed Referendum NA NA $8.85 $8.89 $8.84 NA NA Other questions to be considered: ● If we’re in the same situation in three years, why didn’t the district ask for a five-year or recurring referendum? ● Is this an ongoing issue just with Cambria-Friesland Schools or are there other communities around the state facing this problem? ● Aren’t there places we can “cut” within the current budget? Over the next several months, at board and village meetings, I will make myself available to speak towards and answer questions regarding the referendum. If you’d be interested in hearing more please contact the school or join us at the monthly Board of Education meetings as monthly reports will be given each month leading up to the April 7, 2015 vote. Principal’s Corner by Jim Meyer In the coming months, our students will be completing any number of academic achievement assessments depending on their age levels. ACT, ACT Workkeys, the Badger Exam, and ACT Aspire are all assessments designed to measure student learning. The results of these assessments give indication to both student and parents the degree to which a student has mastered various learning targets throughout their educational career. The results of these assessments may also influence outcomes when students compete for scholarships and attempt entry into various colleges, universities, and technical college programs. Besides being a “snapshot” of student learning progress at the time the assessment is completed, it is also clear that these assessments are important to students’ available future learning opportunities. Yet, I want to suggest an additional benefit gleaned from student achievement results. These results not only help us as professional educators to identify areas of our educational programming and practice that are proficient and excellent, but also to pinpoint areas where we need to focus our efforts to improve. Students, too, need to hear about why these tests are important. Sometimes, some students minimize the importance of these assessments because they don’t see the relevance to their learning or letter grades on their report cards. We as parents and professional educators, working in concert, need to replace students’ misconceptions with a more empowering set of beliefs. These new beliefs include current research about academic achievement and motivation. Sometimes, students will have difficulty in a class and just say to themselves, “I’m not smart enough.” When this happens, students’ efforts may fall off or end completely. Brain-based research out of Stanford University suggests that our brains-our intelligences and abilities-are not fixed, but malleable and subject to growth. The researchers, Dr. Carol Dweck and Dr. Lisa Sorich Blackwell, have coined the term “Growth Mindset” to refer to what they have discovered about student motivation and beliefs (my intelligence/abilities are fixed/limited versus my intelligences/abilities can be stretched and grown through more positive, effortbased learning strategies to work harder and spend more time studying) and academic achievement. This is exciting news for learners of all ages! This news begins with science, but it must end as belief. One of my favorite quotes goes something like this: “Nothing has such power as an idea whose time has come.” What an empowering idea-developing a growth mindset-for us to share with and reinforce to our children. Coming full circle then, I am encouraging all readers-parents, students, family members, community members, and professional educators-to begin a conversation about the importance of our students preparing and expecting to do well during any type of assessment of student learning, whether it be a spelling test, a quiz on Shakespeare, an Algebra I unit exam, or one of the academic achievement assessments listed above. Thank you for reading along. School Counseling News By Mary Henrikson ACT Testing All juniors will be taking the ACT plus Writing on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at school in the high school library.

It is important to have healthy teeth so that cavities do not prevent you from eating meals and having a nice smile! Encourage your child to brush their teeth in the morning and before bed. Applying a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste when your child is two years old is also important. Healthy foods and limited sweet snacks and drinks will also keep teeth healthy. Finally, remember to schedule regular dental check-ups with your dentist. My usual office hours are Mondays and Thursdays. You can reach me at 920-348-5135, Ext. 182 or e-mail email@example.com In Good Health, Stacy Schmitt, School Nurse Preschool Screening The Cambria-Friesland School District is proud to offer free developmental screenings to any child living in the district who will turn three or four by September 1, 2015.
