School District of Fort Atkinson Seeks Community Input Operational, Facility Needs

    The School District of Fort Atkinson is inviting residents to take a
    community-wide survey regarding operational and facility needs as a follow-up to their November 2021 community survey.

    Over the last 9 months, the district held a series of middle school tours, focus groups, and
    community conversations. It is apparent that increasing taxes is a concern for many in our
    community. This concern will be taken into consideration as the Board of Education considers next steps towards any possible referendum questions.

    “In 2022-23 all debt from prior capital and geothermal projects will be entirely paid off, allowing for the reallocation of tax levy funds to the next phase of capital projects and facilities improvements.

    In developing a solution to the district’s facility needs, the district understands that addressing all of the district’s needs at one time may not be feasible.” said Dr. Rob Abbott, superintendent. “While we have a great school district in Fort Atkinson, we also have a number of operational and facility needs that we must address soon so that we can continue to deliver a high-quality educational experience to our students.”

    The survey is available through May 16. It is anonymous and takes about 10 minutes to complete.

    Once it has closed, the results will be presented to the Board of Education at their regular June meeting. Comments or questions can be directed to SDFA Director of Communications, Marissa Weidenfeller at info@fortschools.org or 920-563-7851.

    The survey is available online at www.fortschools.org/survey. Paper copies can be picked up and returned at the Fort Atkinson Chamber of Commerce, Senior Center, Dwight Foster Public Library, and the Municipal Building.
