More deliberation about building needs is planned by La Crosse school board this week



The La Crosse School Board will continue its talks about future building needs, during its Monday night meeting.

The board scheduled discussions during the first four regular meetings of 2024, aimed at reaching a decision on whether to close certain buildings, as the district continues to face declining enrollment and less funding.

A final decision to potentially close Hintgen and North Woods elementary schools — a recommendation after eight months of meetings from a Facilities Advisory Committee — is scheduled at the board’s Feb. 19 meeting.

This week, the board could eliminate options which are not acceptable to the district, and study the options that are left.

And, at its Feb. 5 meeting, the board will compare building options.

    The La Crosse School District is a disaster. The entire district should be shut down and reorganized with new leadership. Disgusted and tired of three years of bickering with little attention placed on student learning or safety. Pathetic.
