WHITE LAKE - Many rural school districts need to pass referendums in order to stay open.
White Lake School will try to pass a referendum for the third time this April.
The first time it only failed by two votes.
That's why the school wants the community to know why the district needs the referendum.
On Saturday more than 60 White Lake community members learned more about the school's upcoming referendum when the school held an informational meeting about the vote.
School administrators say it's important to get the facts to the public.
"There is a referendum committee that has been given the facts of our financial challenges," says White Lake School Superintendent Bill Fisher. Their role is to communicate with other community members to get the factual information out about the needs of the school district."
Administrators spoke about the community losing state aid every year. They say that's a big reason they need to ask the community for more funding.
Administrators want people who attended the meeting to talk to others about it.
"This is a door-to-door issue and it's about friends, neighbors, family members communicating with each other on what the school's financial needs are," Fisher says.
Community members can visit White Lake School's website at the link below to ask any questions about the referendum.

WOODRUFF - Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport hosted a fun-filled day for family and friends on Saturday.
This comes about five months after one of its helicopters crashed, killing three Spirit employees.
Regional manager Charles Kotke said those men were in mind today,
"Today is a day of bringing people together, as well as a celebration of our 25 year anniversary," said Kotke. "This team did an amazing job getting us back to caring for our patients and doing what we need to do to care of our community."
Flight paramedics showed off the aircrafts to people and the helicopter was a big hit.
"They definitely like to look at the aircrafts. See how we transport patients from point A to point B," said Northern Region Supervisor Ryan Short.
Next Saturday, Spirit is celebrating with more associates. The second part of the celebration will be in Stevens Point.
