LA CROSSE, WI (WXOW)—The School District of La Crosse held the first in a series of meetings on the referendum to build a new school on Thursday.
The district is asking voters to approve a new, $15.7 million dollar Northside Elementary School.
The meeting gives the district a chance to answer questions and explain why they want a new elementary school.
A few of those reasons are overcrowding at the Franklin and Roosevelt Elementary Schools and structural issues in the schools.
The district is holding three other meetings:
Saturday, October 20 at Franklin Elementary in the LMC.
Thursday, October 25 at Logan High School in the theatre.
Saturday, October 27 at Hogan Administrative Center in the auditorium.
