New school on table at Turner
TOWN OF BELOIT--An ad hoc committee will hear the latest about plans for a new $28 million Turner High School at a meeting Jan. 8, a week before the school board likely will vote on whether to seek an April referendum for the project.
The Turner School District has talked for years about building a new high school, and a conceptual design has been drawn for a 600-student school on property the district bought in 2011 behind the current high school.
The 15 members of the ad hoc committee will give feedback on whether they have enough information and if they think the community would support the project, Superintendent Dennis McCarthy said.
The school board meets Monday, Jan. 14, and could hold a special meeting Tuesday, Jan. 15, to vote on a resolution for a spring referendum.
A decision must be made by mid-January to get the referendum on the April ballot.
