RIVER FALLS — The school district put out a thank you video this month recognizing the "overwhelming support of the River Falls community" in passing a $48 million referendum in 2018 for a host of building improvement projects.

"As stewards of the referendum dollars, we are pleased to say that the projects are completed and that through careful planning, budgeting, and monitoring the referendum dollars were put to good use," School Board President Stacy Johnson Myers said in a statement. "The updated buildings and learning spaces will serve students and the community for years to come.”
