COMING TO YOUR MAILBOX SOON: Facilities Planning Community-wide Survey

The Wauwatosa School District is continuing to gather broad community input in our long-range master facilities planning process.

In the next two to three weeks (mid-to-late April), all Wauwatosa residents will receive a facilities planning survey from the District. Please watch for this in your mailbox and take 10 minutes to complete the survey. Your input matters and we look forward to hearing from you.

When the survey arrives, read the front page carefully. It includes instructions for how to obtain a second survey if you have more than one adult member in your household that wants to participate. Additionally, District parents and staff will receive an emailed link. Paper copies will also include a link for completing the survey online. We encourage you to take the survey in whichever format you feel most comfortable.

Click HERE for a flyer to share on your social media accounts to help increase awareness of the survey's upcoming arrival and encourage your neighbors, friends and family who are residents to participate.

The results of the survey will be presented to the Wauwatosa School Board, the Facilities Advisory Committee, and the community during the June 11th Board meeting. You are invited to attend.

Results will also be shared via our District website and District communication.
