District ponders initial referendum study

The public showed its support of condensing its elementary students into two buildings according to a recent survey conducted by the Sturgeon Bay School District and the research firm School Perceptions. Over 800 residents participated in the survey, weighing in on a number of issues ahead of a potential capital referendum. Over 70 percent of respondents said they would be in favor of a plan closing Sunset Elementary School.  As a result, the school district could either add four classrooms to Sawyer Elementary School or move fifth-graders to TJ Walker Middle School. Sturgeon Bay School District Superintendent Dan Tjernagel says there is a lot to take away from the study.

 

 

The survey also addressed capital improvements at all the school buildings and the possible cost of the referendum. According to the study, approximately half of the respondents would support a capital referendum in the $20 to 30 million range.
