By early Wednesday morning, we should know how La Crosse residents voted this fall on a $194 million school referendum.
School district leaders say that on Wednesday, they will announce what happens to the high school project after the vote.
The referendum seeks funding to convert the Trane Company headquarters building near Pammel Creek into a new high school, which would replace the current Central and Logan High Schools.
District leaders have suggested that if the referendum fails, Logan students might eventually be moved into Central, though the process could take several years. Much of the public opposition to the building plan stems from the idea of eliminating the city’s only north-side high school.
Other area districts have had very large school referendums on the ballot.
The Onalaska school district is seeking $75 million on a Tuesday referendum, so renovations can be made at the middle school and high school. Holmen wants funding for improvements at three schools in the district, and Bangor also is requesting money to upgrade its school buildings.
