The Shorewood School District will mail out a survey to all Shorewood residents in early October to collect feedback on the District’s Facilities Planning initiative.
Over the last two years, the Shorewood School Board—with help from staff, parents, and community volunteers — has led a Facilities Planning process to identify near-term and long-range needs for facility improvements within the District, and to implement a plan to address these needed improvements. This initiative was driven by the February 2016 Shorewood community Visioning Summit, during which “Modernizing and Maintaining Our Historic Facilities” was identified as a top priority. To assist in the process, the District conducted a facilities assessment of each school. A number of public meetings were then held to review the facilities assessments and develop potential solutions for improving all Shorewood school buildings. (Detailed information on the facilities planning work to date is available at www.shorewood.k12.wi.us/facilities/)
Ultimately, any solution must reflect student needs as well as the priorities of the broader Shorewood community. Therefore, prior to making any decisions about how to move forward, the District is encouraging all residents to participate in this important community-wide survey effort. Surveys will be mailed to all district households in early October 2018 and will be open through October 29, 2018.
