Although a decision has not been made, members of the Glendale-River Hills School Board on Wednesday said they likely would not be interested in participating in a consolidation study with Nicolet High School and fellow K-8 feeder districts Fox Point-Bayside and Maple Dale-Indian Hill if monetary contributions had to be made.
Current budgetary constraints were cited as a reason.
School Perceptions, a consulting firm hired by Nicolet, issued a survey to households in Bayside, Fox Point, Glendale and River Hills in December. Nearly 80 percent of the more than 1,100 respondents favored exploring consolidation if long-term cost savings could be realized.
Administrators in all four districts will continue to discuss the issue at shared services meetings. The next one has been scheduled in May.
