MMSD renovation project up in the air

Posted: Monday, August 18, 2014 --- 9:25pm

The Madison Metropolitan School District is considering renovating over a dozen of its elementary schools.

Currently, high enrollment is causing an overcrowding issue at many of the the district's elementary schools. That's why the district is looking at expanding five elementary schools.

The school board is thinking about placing a $20 million school referendum that would go on the April 2015 ballot.

The project proposal also includes upgrading a dozen Madison public schools to make them more disability friendly.

The school board has not yet decided if they will even move forward with referendum. A decision is expected by November or December of this year.

If the referendum gets on the ballot and passes construction could start at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year.
