New report says the Nicolet Unified High School District has seen big savings from Act 10, as has Maple Dale-Indian Hill School District. However, Fox Point-Bayside didn't benefit nearly as much.
The controversial state law that eliminated most collective bargaining rights for school employees reduced benefit costs for Nicolet High School District by $418,000 last school year, according to a report released Monday. However, Fox Point-Bayside saw a $57,000 increase in benefit costs. The bulk of the savings for Nicolet came from reductions in the district's share of employee retirement costs, the report by the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance said. In the 2010-11 school year, Nicolet paid $567,629 toward the employee share of pension costs for workers; in 2011-12, that dropped to about $37,043, a 93.5 percent reduction, the report said. But the district paid 5.1 percent more in 2011-12 for health insurance costs for a total of $2.3 …

The Nicolet Jr. Knights are a fifth through eighth grade football program that has traditionally had lower turnout than football hotbeds like Mequon. “More than anything, it’s a numbers thing," Rick Lagerman, assistant fifth-grade coach said. "There are so many kids out there (in Mequon). Sometimes it’s a tough sell in the North Shore. Kids are still doing soccer and other things.” And while recruiting may be more suited at the college and university level, it proved very successful for the Jr. Knights. Going door-to-…
