PROCTOR - The school district is set to ask voters to check "yes" for a $7.9 million referendum in November.
The money would be used to renovate Bay View Elementary by tearing down and rebuilding the building’s oldest portion along with adding on to the other side.
The older portion of the building was built in 1918 and shows signs of deterioration outside and inside.
It also lacks an elevator and handicap accessibility.
Proctor Public Schools Superintendent said it was time to invest in something better.
"World War I had just ended when this building was built and so we're looking for efficiencies and just a better space for our kids," Proctor Public Schools Superintendent John Engelking said. "It certainly will improve the environments of this whole neighborhood and we're really excited about the possibilities."
The district is required to inform voters that voting "yes" on the Nov. 6 ballot would be authorizing a tax increase.
However, Engelking said it would not result in any increases for following years, but would instead extend the district's present building levy for seven years.
