Onalaska Board "OK's" Bond Measure.
bond measureGreat news, everyone! The Onalaska School District Board of Directors unanimously approved a resolution to move forward with a Capital Construction Project at their October School Board meeting. The motion will now go before the voters in February, 2018. 

The Onalaska Facilities Task Force, comprised of community members and school board members, have met over a period of seven months to discuss the bond proposal. The construction projects consist of building four new classrooms to Onalaska Middle School, a new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) building at Onalaska High School and a new Maintenance/Records Retention building located on the Onalaska School District campus. 

The last time the school district went to the voters for a capital construction project was 15 years ago, in February of 2003. Those funds were used for capital improvements at Onalaska High School. More details about the bond will be forthcoming once plans are finalized with construction consultants and architectural drawings are completed.
