Dr. Joe Schroeder, superintendent of the Muskego-Norway School District, unveiled a video that will be available on the district's website in the coming week. The seven-minute piece outlines the goals of the facilities planning initiative at the district, which will close Muskego Elementary and Tess Corners Elementary schools and expand others in the city, as well as build a new elementary school on the city's eastern border.
The effort is the latest piece in the communications strategy for the district to reach residents who may have had reservations about the previous referendum, and voted against it. The previous referendum failed by about four percent, and the new proposal addresses cost concerns by lowering the borrowing amount by $5 million.
In addition to the video, October will present a variety of opportunities to tour area schools, and to meet with district representatives to ask questions and voice concerns.
