Investing in our Future: Safe, Strong, Successful
November 7, 2018
We would like to thank our entire school district community for your engagement and thoughtful consideration of the referendum question on the November 6 ballot.
We are pleased the solution the board presented to voters was approved.
With the passage of the referendum, our district will be able to address its financial needs, strengthen the physical safety of our schools and enhance the educational opportunities provided to students.
We are also very grateful to have had the opportunity to engage the community in a two-way conversation about the district's needs, the process used to evaluate those needs and the development of a targeted solution. Over the last year, we have spoken with hundreds of community members, staff and students about how we can best position the district and its schools for the years to come. These conversations will continue.
With that, we want to thank you for your commitment to the School District of South Milwaukee and the students and families we serve.
