This fall the Cedarburg School Board unanimously voted to adopt a community input approach with focus groups to identify and confirm school district teaching and learning needs as part of the current Long Range Master Planning (LRMP) process.
The LRMP process includes an approach to assess the climate of educational programming and to ensure our spaces align with current and future teaching and learning needs. According to Applied Population Laboratory (APL) out of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and input from local municipalities, student enrollment and local population through planned development is expected to increase. This enrollment and resident population information was presented at the November Board meeting. November 2017 through early 2018, several focus groups continue to be conducted with parents, students and the community to gain input on our programs and corresponding facilities.
“The Long Range Master Plan process will identify and confirm programming, practices, and space requirements to achieve CSD’s vision in being a premier school district in the country, now and well into the future. Through focus groups and other community outreach, we will gather teacher, parent, student and community input. We don’t underestimate the importance of listening as an important part of the needs identification process”, said Superintendent Todd Bugnacki.
Collaborating with the District through these efforts is CG Schmidt Construction and GROTH Design Group. Both firms were approved by the School Board to partner with the district in developing the Long Range Master Plan over the next several months.
