Board passes resolution for bond referendum

The New Prague Area School Board passed a resolution at its meeting Monday, March 8, calling for a $46 million bond referendum to build three elementary schools, which would open in the fall of 2006.

The three schools would be located in New Prague, Lonsdale and New Market, and would provide room for a growing district population in all three areas of the district.

The proposal also calls for renovation of the current Intermediate School. That building would be used for administration, community education, early childhood, special services and several other needed programs which are currently limited by space.

Space crunch

District Operations Director Tim Rybak presented maps and demographic information that showed the growth the district is experiencing. He showed a graph that showed district elementary school population, split between east and west. Based only on current school census figures, current elementary enrollment is 1,465, and will increase to 1,509 in 2004-05, stay stable for one year, then increase to 1,570 in 2006-07, the first year the new buildings would be open.

And these are just for kids currently in our school census. We have names and addresses for these kids
