New Prague Area School board members had a wide range of topics to deal with at their September 26 meeting, but like so many meetings in recent months, many of them seemed tied to growth and building issues.

Board members were briefed on the financial aspects of the November 8 referendum, heard a report on the Special Education program, discussed utilization of the current intermediate school building once the new elementary buildings are up and running, and received a report on attendance boundaries for elementary schools next year.

Finance

Joel Sutter of Ehlers and Associates, bond consultants for the district, went over the numbers for the bond referendum.

He gave some background information about the district’s taxable market value, which has increased an average of 1.6 percent annually for the last 10 years, and 19.1 percent annually over the last three years.

This rapid growth is due to a combination of new construction and inflation
