Referendum For Fremont Community Schools Will Be On The November Ballot
Friday, August 12, 2022

FREMONT, IN - Election Day is coming up on Tuesday, November 8th, and the ballot for some Steuben County residents will include a school referendum for Fremont Community Schools.

Officials with the Fremont School District are advising voters to investigate the referendum issues in advance so they know whether to vote yes or no.
Over the years, the Indiana General Assembly has added requirements to the referendum bill questions to try and help voters. The ballot questions are getting longer. Ten years ago, the ballot questions averaged five lines. Five years ago, the ballot questions averaged seven lines and this May, they averaged twelve lines.

These questions include a description of proposed spending to help voters evaluate the referendum’s benefits. For example, the Fremont Community Schools Referendum will pay for funding academics and educational related programs. It will also include funding for retaining and attracting teachers and staff, managing class size and supporting the operations fund.
Members of the Fremont community are invited to learn more about the referendum being presented at the first of several public meetings. The first discussion meeting is set for Thursday, August 18th, at the Fremont Town Hall starting at 6 PM.
