7-11-19 fdl school district referendum moving forward

The Fond du Lac School District is moving forward following passage of a major building referendum earlier this spring.   Superintendent Dr.   Jim Sebert says the initial $25 million short term bond anticipation note approved by the school board last month has been wired to the district this week.  Sebert says this is the first of what will be three borrowing opportunities to pay for the referendum.   Sebert says some smaller projects are already underway this summer.  “We’re doing a roofing project at Roberts (Elementary School) that’s part of the referendum and we’re doing a boiler project at Evans. (Elementary School)   Those projects we’ll be able to pay for with this first dollar allotment.  We’re also now into the process of schools in phase one.  Theisen, Chegwin, Watersr and Pier.  Doing more detailed drawings.”    Bidding for the phase one projects will occur in December and January.   In April. voters approved a $91.5 million referendum question to maintain and upgrade every school building in the  district and a second question to spend $7 million to make sure every school building in the district is air conditioned.
