Posted on Aug 25, 2022 by Education

The Viroqua School Board voted in favor of having two facilities referendum questions on the Nov. 8 fall general election ballot at its meeting, Monday, Aug. 15. The two questions would total $20.5 million.

The vote was 5-0. Robert Nigh and Amanda Running had excused absences.

The first question is for the proposed base plan, which is an estimated $17 million. The base plan would include the following projects at the elementary school site: Expand the commons area to create a secure entry next to the office; reconfigure traffic flow by creating dedicated bus loop and a separate student pick-up/drop-area; create additional classrooms by relocating the district office; renovate underutilized areas into flexible learning spaces for both small- and large-group instruction; add hallway storage for students and staff; repair entrance columns and repaint the area; replace air circulation equipment, as needed in renovated areas; and add age-appropriate bathrooms for elementary students in 4K and kindergarten.
