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.

● The District of Cambria-Friesland is asking for $1,400,000 over the next three
years. 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.

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.

ACT Testing
All juniors will be taking the ACT plus Writing on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at school in the
high school library. We will start by 8:30 a.m. The test will take 4-5 hours and there is no fee
for the test. If students are ill, they can take the make-up test on March 17th. Please make
every effort to have your junior attend. Once testing starts, late arriving students will not be
allowed to test. In addition, juniors will be taking the ACT WorkKeys on March 4th, which
includes 3, forty-five minute tests in Reading, Location Information and Math. The make-up
day for the WorkKey is March 18th. Students will be doing some ACT preparation in various
classes and should get on the ACT website to check out the pre-tests and ACT question of
the day, at www.ACT.org and march2success.com
The testing is required by the 2011 Assembly Bill 40, Act 20 and the 2013-15 biennial state
budget that states Wisconsin will assess all high school students in 9, 10 and 11th grade.
Nineth grade students take the ACT Aspire in fall and spring and 10th grade students will
take the ACT Aspire in spring.
Academic Planning
There will be an 8th grade parent meeting on February 4 th at 4:00 p.m. in the high school
library. I will go over credit information and course options. Mrs. Fude and I are currently
working with the 8th grade class on career planning and getting ready for high school.
Scheduling Classes 2015-2016
Starting next year all classes at both Randolph High School and Cambria-Friesland High
School will be open to all students. In the event of scheduling conflicts or large class
numbers, preference will be given to seniors and juniors. The scheduling process will start at
the end of January as I will meet with the 9th grade students during their English class and
meet individually with the sophomores and juniors. During the conference, students will get a
credit check and I will go over course options and requirements. If parents would like to be
part of the scheduling conference, please call and I will set a time that is convenient for
parents and student.
Scholarships
Please check on the C-F website for scholarships. This year I have a new format for the
seniors to complete for local scholarships. A copy of the form and directions, including a short
resume are included in this newsletter. Students can access the form from our C-F website.
PLEASE contact Mrs. Henrikson or Mrs. Warren if you need help. Students should turn in the
application to Mrs. Henrikson by March 2, 2015. The local scholarships are: Seneca Foods,
Terry Vredeveld, Old Mill Foundation/Eugene Jenkins, C-F Alumni, Kiwanis, Zachary Schultz,
CFEA, Masonic, American Legion Aux, American Legion, Royal Neighbors, Ryan Jones, C-F
Youth Soccer, Donald Koeppe and Rascals and Rockers.
FAFSA
College Goal Wisconsin will be at various locations during February. The purpose of College
Goal Wisconsin is to give you on-site professional assistance completing the FAFSA (Free
Application for Federal Student Aid). You must complete the FAFSA to be considered for
grants and loans to help pay for college. Please go to www.colleegegoalwi.org for more
information. The event starts at 2:00 p.m. on February 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th.
School Nurse Information
February is National Dental Month and a good time to remember the importance of
keeping teeth healthy. 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 sschmitt@cfsdwi.org
In Good Health,
Stacy Schmitt, School Nurse
