Dr. Jimenez on La Crosse School’s $54 million referendum, changes at WTC



Dr. Juan Jimenez in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on May 7, 2024. Jimenez is the La Crosse School Board president, as well as the associate dean for Western Technical College.

The $54 million question is coming to the November ballot for La Crosse School District voters and school board president, Dr. Juan Jimenez, joined La Crosse Talk PM on Tuesday to break down the plan. Jimenez is also the associate dean at Western Technical College in La Crosse, and we discuss some new changes to classes that just started, as well.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

And that’s where we started (6:45) the first big segment of the show, with changes to WTC class lengths which sounds like it will add more flexibility for students, as well as allow them to focus more on less subjects.

In the second half of the show (17:00), we get into the La Crosse School District’s referendum question headed to the November ballot, to consolidate four elementary schools, build a new school at the Hogan Administrative site and update State Road Elementary. 

And we discuss the makeup of community engagement sessions on those plans happening in person on May 22 and May 28 at 6 p.m (though no site has been selected) and virtually at noon May 21 and June 6.
