Two Racine Unified School Board meetings are on Cable TV.
1. Monday's Racine Unified Board of Education meeting that included a presentation of the District’s Reinvestment Plan is now on RUSD Channel 20, on Time Warner Cable. The video is shown at 4:30 p.m. daily.
The School Board reviewed a plan that includes the construction of three new elementary schools and additions/improvements to five existing elementary buildings.

The board is seeking public input, and may schedule a fall referendum in June.
