WHAT'S ON THE BALLOT ON APRIL 4TH?

Vote on April 4th from Falls Schools on Vimeo.

BACKGROUND 

The School District of Menomonee Falls is one of the oldest institutions in our community and we've  proudly served our Village and generations of youth for 135 years. We share strong family values, high expectations for our schools and a common goal to prepare all students for college, workforce and career.

Our strong partnerships with community leaders, local businesses and area colleges directly impact our programs and the knowledge and skills at the core of our teaching and learning. As a result, student achievement in Menomonee Falls consistently ranks among the highest in Wisconsin. We offer a robust Community Education & Recreation Program each year that serves more than 10,000 people from preschool to seniors in facilities across the district. We are grateful for an engaged community that remains actively involved in our schools.

We are committed to working with the community and balancing our educational mission, responsibilities and priorities with those of our taxpayers. The Board has defined operational funding needs for the next 3 years in order to maintain programs, class size and certified teachers for health, music, art, library media, physical education and guidance at the elementary level.

In spring 2015, the Board and district administrators hosted three community workshops with more than 100 participants to discuss findings, listen to community feedback and define preliminary options. The Board then sought input in September 2015 from the community around facility and operational funding in the form of a phone and written survey.  

In Spring 2016 our community passed a facility referendum that will complete approximately 70 projects across the district that will make our schools safer, more efficient and more capable of preparing students for a profoundly different future.

The board also proposed a permanent 2% lift in the school district's revenue limit which did not pass. As a result, all schools and divisions underwent a 7% operational budget reduction for the 2016-2017 school year. The board has listened to feedback from across the community that suggested that our voters were not comfortable with a permanent aspect of the revinue limit increase. 

Before making significant changes to the structure of education in the School District of Menomonee Falls the board would like to have the community input with a vote on April 4th.
