Kiel Board of Education members, along with community and staff, discussed potential next steps regarding the recently failed $10.4 million dollar athletic facilities and auditorium referendum.

Board members invited the public to share their thoughts regarding a potential second referendum and why the recent referendum failed.
First to speak was Kiel resident Jack Lechler who said he believes one of the major issues in why the referendum failed is because of residents’ experiences with the maintenance of the school.

Lechler cited numerous issues including the District’s small shed, which according to Lechler has a broken window, unlocked doors, an outside light fixture with no light bulb, an inoperable doorknob and junk sitting outside the building. “One of our big emphasis was school safety,” he told board members.
