Senior Tax Exchange Program

The Senior Tax Exchange Program is a result of a pilot project initiated in the Kaukauna Area School District in the fall of 1995. The first program of its kind in Wisconsin, it allows senior citizens, 62 years of age and older, whose primary residences are in the District and who pay property tax on these residences, to work in their local school.

We believe that the senior citizens in our community have a great deal to offer our young people and that building bridges​ between the generations is beneficial to everyone.

The Program allows social security eligible senior citizens, 62 years of age and older, whose primary residence is within the School District of Weyauwega-Fremont who pay property taxes on these residences, to work in the District in exchange for property tax credit.  Pay is $6.50 per hour. Two (but not more than two) eligible residents of the same property may share work to meet the $429 maximum amount for each primary residence, but combined pay cannot exceed $429. This $429 amounts to a maximum of 66 work hours per household.
