MILTON (WKOW) — The Milton School District is asking for money in a referendum to improve its schools.
The district hosted a community meeting on Sunday to answer questions about the nearly $60-million referendum.
The district says it would use the money to build additions and enhance classroom spaces, moving students out of basements and closets being used as classrooms.
School officials say many may not be aware of issues with space. Kids have to sit on the floor during lunch because there’s not enough room in the cafeteria.
“We do not have any computer labs or any empty rooms in this high school building at any hour of the day. So that makes it difficult to separate kids or put kids that might have some special needs we have to deal with to work with them. So we’re trying to get enough room to accommodate all the needs of our kids here,” said Don Vruwink, VP of the school board.
School officials say there have been no major additions to Milton schools in the last 15 years.
