PW-S District to hire pollster in advance of referendum PDF Print E-mail

Public survey seen as key to gauging support for multi-million-dollar plan

    The Port Washington-Saukville School Board is not about to head blindly into what promises to be the most ambitious referendum in the history of the district — a multi-million-dollar plan to expand elementary schools, renovate buildings and either extensively remodel the existing high school or build a new school on a different site.

    The Building and Grounds Committee on Monday recommended the board hire the Slinger-based research firm School Perceptions to poll district residents and give school leaders a good idea of which projects voters will support and how much they are willing to pay for school improvements.

    The survey, which will likely have both direct mail and Web-based components, will be designed to collect objective feedback that is “viewed as credible” because it is done by School Perceptions, not the district, and “engage” the public in the referendum planning process, according to the company’s proposal.

    “Simply stated, people are more likely to support a plan if they have a voice in creating it,” the proposal states.
