The District created instructional mailers with facts, figures, and more information on the referendum. These mailers have been and will continue to be mailed out to all Shorewood households throughout February and March.
The District is committed to legislative advocacy and has taken/continues to take steps to make sure legislators know the need for support of public schools. At the March 14 Board meeting, the Board approved a resolution to send to all state legislators regarding our three key legislative priorities: a per pupil spending increase of $1,510 over the biennium; sustainable categorical aid funding for mental health; and increasing the special education reimbursement to 60% to meet the needs of all students across our region.
