It will be a busy meeting for the Antigo School Board Tuesday evening, as they will have their monthly Committee of the Whole meeting.
The board will first take another look at the 2015-16 budget, with updates on actions taken by the district this month which help save more money. They include eliminating a a health insurance increase saving $100,000. Dropping the salary increase from 2% to 1.62%, saving $60,000 and also Refined Salary and Benefit Calculation with all retirements and resignations.
The next item deals with facilities. The board will review all studies done on the elementary schools dating back to 2002, and will hear about a proposal created by school board member Scott Jensema. In Jensema's plan, Crestwood and North Elementary would both be closed, with West Elementary housing special needs students, and the other students being transferred to Pleasant View Elementary or East Elementary following re-zoning of the boundaries. All schools would be upgraded as part of the CESA 10 and HVAC reports.
