West Salem voters to weigh in on new school


WEST SALEM, Wisconsin (WXOW)-- A school referendum will appear on the ballot for West Salem voters this April.

The school board is asking to build a $30 million middle school. Superintendent Troy Gunderson says a growing student population makes the new school necessary.

"We did a number of cost analysis and examination of this," Gunderson said. "It became the board's feeling that creating a new third spot that a larger third building would handle kids in the middle, (grades) four through eight. It would free up space in our elementary school and the money we spent remodeling the other building could be contributed to the new facility."

The school board is planning to hold a series of community meetings where voters can learn more about the building details and the overall construction plan.
