With three previous failed attempts, the Mosinee School District is hoping the fourth time is a charm.
The new proposal would add onto the existing elementary school. Plans are to build a new gym, media center and 14 new classrooms. The school added four portable classrooms, outside the building last summer to help control class sizes.
School officials say the scaled down referendum plan will at least solve K-3 space problems but enrollment numbers show a larger than anticipated kindergarten class coming in the fall.
Mosinee Schools Superintendent, Jerry Rosso says regardless of whether the referendum passes, the tax rate is going down next year with the payment of a 1995 community center project complete. If the measure is approved, tax payers would see an $0.85 per $1,000 property milage rate.
