PW-S board gets to work paring $86 million school plan PDF Print E-mail

Members defend initial proposal but commit to reducing scope, cost of projects to win support for April referendum

    Port Washington-Saukville School Board members on Monday said the failed proposal to spend $86 million on elementary and high school improvements was “ideal,” not extravagant, but they nonetheless agreed to pare the scope and cost of the plan in preparation for an April referendum.

    â€śIdeal is not the same as extravagant,” board member Michelle Shinners said. “I don’t think this plan was over the top at all.

    â€śReducing the cost is going to be a challenge.”

    But it will be necessary if the board is going to win support for a plan that calls for significant improvements at four of the district’s five schools, according to the results of a recent survey. A majority of school district residents who responded to the survey expressed support for renovating schools but indicated they were not willing to spend $25 million on elementary schools and $61 million on Port Washington High School.

    Some board members, however, appear reluctant to pare the school improvement plan proposed Bray Architects.
