Out of the 67 school referendum questions on ballots across Wisconsin, only 12 failed.

Taxpayers in the Germantown School District voted to approve an $84 million dollar referendum to fund district-wide building improvements the school district superintendent considers much needed.

"I think people in Germantown school district understand that they get a good product for the money they spend here," Jeff Holmes said.

However, not every Wisconsin taxpayer agreed with schools asking for more money.

Voters in Waukesha County turned down a referendum that would have supported building improvements like a new pool and auditorium.
