School Funding Information

School Funding

During our community referendum meetings, School Officials heard citizens ask what they can do to help change the current school funding formula.

Since the February referendum, there have been developments, and we updated the community on the status of the school funding situation at a community meeting held on May 22, 2013.  Approximately 20 people attended the meeting.

Incoming Superinendent Kelli Jacobi provided an update on what has been done since the February referendum.  Business Manager Marta Kwiatkowski shared the presentation she recently did for legislators in Madison, and we discussed what's next.

A sample letter and contact information was provided so that interested parties may contact our local legislators.  Click here to view the sample letter and contact information.

School officials distributed a handout of the effects of AB40 on Rural School Districts from the Wisconsin Rural Schools Alliance.  Click here to view the handout.


Further updates will be made to this site as we gather more information.
