Survey shows support for renovating elementary facilities, current high school, but not for $25 million to $97 million

   Port Washington-Saukville School District residents support the concept of renovating elementary schools and Port Washington High School but made it clear they will not spend between $25 million and $97 million on improvements proposed by the district’s architectural firm, according to the results of a survey intended to gauge support for a possible referendum.

    “A majority of residents are saying, ‘Do something. We know there are needs, but you have to figure out a way to spend less money to do this,’” Bill Foster, president of School Perceptions, the Slinger firm hired to conduct the survey, told the school board Tuesday.

    Opposition to a proposal to renovate and enlarge Lincoln, Dunwiddie and Saukville elementary schools and either demolish and rebuild 70% of Port High or construct a new school at a yet-to-be identified site was “primarily because of cost,” Foster said. “It’s very expensive. It is too expensive.”

    The survey results are a clear indication that the renovation plan proposed by Bray Architects, the firm hired by the school board to conduct a sweeping study of district facilities, is nowhere near ready to put to a referendum, which school officials had hoped to do as early as February.
