La Crosse School Board president Dr. Juan Jimenez joined WIZM on Thursday for La Crosse Talk PM to talk about the future of the district post $194.7 million referendum question, as well as what entails being on the board.

The first thing we discussed with Jimenez was the upcoming elections, where four new school board members will be elected out of the pool of nine currently running — meaning there will be a February primary to cut that number to eight.
Before Jimenez joined, however, WIZM’s Brad Williams stopped in studio to talk about the last time he remembers that many new board members coming on, which was back during the 1992 school board special recall election in July.
Along with the election, Jimenez spoke about what entails being a school board member.
We wrapped up the conversation in how administration is beginning to discuss the future of the La Crosse School District, post the $194.7 million new high school consolidation plan was voted down last November.
One other guest did join, but was only posing for a photo op and left the studio when a co-worker began eating a burrito.
