It looks like residents of the Platteville  School District would support building renovations to school facilities in the district. At least that’s what the results of the recent Facilities Study Survey shows. It was conducted by the Platteville School District.  Just over 200 people responded, and about 90% are in favor of the district putting any proposed building improvements to a referendum. Superintendent Connie Valenza says the district could borrow almost $17-million without raising the tax levy for debt service. The survey presented five different options for residents to consider. The option that gained the most support calls for moving fourth graders from the Platteville Middle School to the Westview Elementary School. Estimated cost is just under $19-million. The Platteville School Board has taken no formal action on the survey results, but could consider them at the board meeting in August. It could be part of the district’s long-term plans. Any referendum wouldn’t be put to the voters until next year.
