A November referendum on adding a new school, closing two others and renovating the rest to accommodate increasing needs and aging structures was defeated, but Muskego-Norway Schools are willing to try again.
Residents are urged to attend one of two community discussions about ongoing efforts to address elementary school facilities' needs. Residents are being asked to evaluate a preliminary revised solution presented by the district, which it says responds directly to voter feedback provided after the unsuccessful November referendum.
Originally, plans were to reduce five elementary schools to three, however the new plan would keep Country Meadows Elementary, with a new secure main entrance. Tess Corners and Muskego Elementary schools are still part of plans to close.
In addition, the original referendum amount of $34.06 million would become a range of $31.46 - $35.04 million. Additional details are available on the school district's website.
Meetings will be held on Wednesday, May 18 at 7 p.m. at Lakeview Elementary School's gym, and again on Tuesday, May 24 at 7 p.m. at Muskego High School, Room 243.
Residents who aren't able to make the forums are welcome to contact the district by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
