More meetings about La Crosse school referendums coming up



A new series of public meetings on La Crosse school proposals is about to start.

The district completed its first four meetings about future building construction earlier this month. Now, there are two more virtual sessions scheduled.

The first one will be online Tuesday and the other is July 17. Both sessions will be conducted at 6 p.m.

At these meetings, the district plans to ask people their concerns about the $53.5 million referendum, which is set for the November ballot.

The plan is to essentially tear down the Hogan Administrative Center and build a new elementary school there, while updating State Road Elementary with eight new classrooms and a new gym. At the same time, Hintgen, Spence and Emerson elementary schools will close.

    Taxpayers haven’t yet seen the full effect of the record $60 million referendum passed last fall and already these grifters are back at it for another $50 million. Unbelievable.

    Meanwhile, attendance and performance of students who do bother to show up at school is dropping like a stone and the media is silent, preferring to write about Milwaukee schools instead.
