The School Board, in a work session on Monday, took no formal action but agreed in principle to a two-question referendum.
Question one builds a new, 650-capacity Jackson Elementary School at a new site, puts a two-story expansion onto Silverbrook Middle School to allow for 900 students, puts an expansion on Decorah Elementary to handle 650 and puts secure entrances at all 10 schools. The cost is about $41 million.
Question two remodels Badger Middle School with a two-story portion to hold 900 students for $27.4 million.
The district’s financial advisor is calculating the interest on each question. (Estimated at work session to be approximately 26.5K'ish).

So let's take a look here -
After coercive video tactics, biased newspaper articles (i.e. 15 Minutes with Warren Schmidt, WB News/Aug. 7; public patting of selves on backs - watch School Board session of 08/11, this went on heartily at the end of the work session, as well; the faulty referendum survey that provided inconclusive results and wasted taxpayer money, public slander of citizens who questioned any of the above, I guess one can only conclude that the West Bend community will be too "ashamed and intimidated" to vote for anything less than "all of the above" on the referendum.
