School Board urges all to vote

To the Editor:

On Tuesday, April 1, we have the privilege to go to the polls and exercise our right to vote.

As you are aware, April 2014 represents an opportunity for each district resident to voice their opinion on how to provide safe, appropriate and inspiring learning environments through two independent referendum questions.

As a School Board, we work hard to consider the consequence of our decisions, understanding that our children’s future depends on the choices we make today and that we must balance this with the needs of our taxpayers as well.

In response to this charge, we have communicated with you about a facilities plan that recognizes identified needs and responds directly to your feedback.

The April 2014 referendum has been revised since last year through reductions in costs, proposed projects and added choice for how money could be spent.

We have approached this with caution to minimize the impact on student learning and future needs, while prioritizing the most critical failures in systems and structures that require immediate solutions.

We have worked hard to be responsive to community feedback and respectful of the financial impact on our community.

We have not taken this responsibility lightly and have done our best to conduct business with transparency as we bring forward solutions that recognize the objectives and goals of stakeholders with a variety of interests and concerns.

We hope that our final efforts to inform, engage and encourage your participation will enable you to make an informed decision on April 1.

Whether you are a parent with children in our schools, grandparent, business owner or resident without children, we believe that your vote matters.

No matter the outcome, we will remain focused on student achievement, which is something we can all agree is a worthy pursuit for our children and our community.

We ask that all residents take time to vote, either in person, early or by absentee ballot.

If you are uncertain how to register or require assistance with early/absentee voting, please visit MYVOTE.WI.GOV or call your local County Clerk’s office.

A contact list is available on the Sheboygan Falls School District website. Polls will be open on Tuesday, April 1, from 7 a.m.- 8 p.m.

If you would like to learn more about the revised and reduced referendum plan, visit www.sheboyganfalls. or contact a School Board member.

We are happy to help answer your questions. Expect the Exceptional!
