A glance at the facilities proposal
space
A glance at the facility study, reviewed by the Antigo school board Tuesday:

—Antigo is a geographically large district, at 540 square miles, with an above average number of elementary schools as compared to the state and nation.

—Elementary schools, with an average size of 18,770 square feet, are much smaller than the state average of 80,000 square feet.

—Overall facilities are in good shape for their age, however there are issues related to age, general wear and deferred maintenance.

—Top 10 list of prioritized projects include air handling equipment at West, East, North and Pleasant View; classroom floors at East and Crestwood; corridor floors at the Middle School and Crestwood; a parking lot at North; and a roof at Mattoon.

—Conservative estimated cost of most pressing repairs placed at $10 million.

—Buildings would still be 50 years old and, while up to current standards, would not be prepared for future educational challenges. It would be up to the board of education to determine what would be necessary to make the buildings ready for the next half-century of education and if it would be worth the expense.

—Cost of a new, centralized elementary school, built to 21st century standards, estimated at $25.6 million.

—Either new construction or large-scale renovations are necessary due to deferred maintenance, and should be considered long-term investments in the district’s facilities.
