Out of room in elementary buildings, board poised to commission feasibility study

    Out of space at two of its elementary schools and faced with a high school operating in cramped quarters, the Port Washington-Saukville School District plans to commission a comprehensive study of its facilities that promises to spark discussions about a significant investment in school buildings and land.

    The School Board is expected to act next week on a Building and Grounds Committee recommendation and hire an architectural firm to conduct the study, which is estimated to cost between $10,000 and $20,000.

    The study is both a reaction to an immediate problem — Lincoln and Dunwiddie elementary schools in Port are at capacity — and plan for a future in which some facilities — Port Washington High School, for example — are no longer adequate.

    “All you have to do is take a look at our kindergarten numbers to know we have a problem,” Building and Grounds Committee member Jim Olson said during a Sept. 23 meeting. “We have too many kids for the bricks and mortar we have.”
