Eau Claire School Board to explore possible revenue sources

Eau Claire (WQOW) – The Eau Claire School District is considering possible, new revenue sources, for the first time.

The Eau Claire School Board wants to hold a discussion during its meeting Monday night, to explore possible new educational programs, public-private partnerships and even real estate and development potential for the district. This is the first time the district has looked at new ways to bring in additional money.

Eau Claire School Board President, Joe Luginbill, and district Superintendent Mary Ann Hardebeck have gotten ideas from other districts to see if they would work here in Eau Claire. 

"This conversation that will be happening Monday night is our board doing it’s homework, and having the conversations, looking at what are some creative ideas that we could peruse as a district that would go beyond just having to raise taxes, would go beyond just having to ask the state for more money," Luginbill said. "Potentially areas that we as a district could own our own destiny."

Luginbill was unable to give News 18 specifics on ideas that will be presented to the board ahead of Monday’s meeting, but said the main idea behind them is to find ones that don’t cut services or programs and won’t increase taxes. 

The school board meeting will be held Monday, August 20 at 7 p.m.
