PW-S officials vow to revamp school proposal, hold referendum PDF Print E-mail

Weak support for spending $87 million was expected, but plan, survey still useful, they say

    Port Washington-Saukville School District officials said this week they could have guessed that a majority of residents who responded to a recent survey are opposed to spending between $25 million and $97 million on school improvements proposed by the district’s architectural firm.

    “No, I’m not surprised by the survey results,” school board President Carey Gremminger said. “The purpose of the survey was to put everything out on the table. That came at a pretty high cost, so no, I’m not surprised residents are not in favor of it.”

    So, was a process that cost the district $25,943 — $12,000 for a facilities study conducted by Bray Architects that recommended building additions at the district’s three elementary schools and demolishing and rebuilding 70% of Port Washington High School and $13,943 for a survey conducted by School Perceptions — worth it?

    “It was definitely worth it,” Supt. Michael Weber said, because the data collected by the survey will be used by the school board to rework the improvement plan and put it to the ultimate test — a referendum — as early as April.
