Antigo Schools May Be Shut


The Antigo school board will put a referendum before voters, asking them to decide whether to build a new facility and shut down seven elementary schools.

The centralized school would have pre-kindergarden through fifth grade.

"I understand that times are tough and tax dollars are not in readily demand right now," said Antigo school board president Gary Kieper.  "But its what's needed for education and eventually this will happen in the Antigo school district, it's just a matter of when."

The district says the move would save a million dollars. The referendum could take place as early as October.
