Referendum

On November 8, 2022, registered voters of the MSD of Wabash County school district will have the opportunity to vote on a capital project referendum. The project proposes the building of a new high school and repurposing of the current junior/senior high schools. The new high school would combine students in grades 9-12 currently at Northfield and Southwood. The current Northfield and Southwood Jr/Sr High buildings would transition into buildings for preschool through 8th grade.

Our district leaders aim to provide transparent information for our community. In return, we hope our community will thoroughly engage with the information provided through this website. Better decisions are made with a fuller understanding.

These neighboring school districts have recently invested funds to update and expand their facilities as well. MSD of Wabash County's strong assessed valuation allows us to operate with a relatively low tax rate. Even with the increase to our tax rate (projected to be around $1.34 in 2024), we will still be lower, if not comparable to other districts in our area.
