The School District of Baraboo Board of Education invites all community members to participate in the District’s upcoming community-wide facilities planning survey. Rejuvenating the District’s elementary schools has been the focus of the School Board’s facilities planning work.  The forthcoming survey is a critical step in gathering feedback to inform the School Board’s ongoing planning.  

“The community-wide survey is absolutely critical and we encourage all School District of Baraboo residents to provide their input,” said School Board President Kevin Vodak.  “Our facilities planning work will be guided by these survey results; we want as many voices involved in the process as possible.”

The District initiated the facilities planning process in Fall 2023 with meetings of the Elementary Facility Advisory Committee (EFAC), a group of staff, parents, community members, and local business owners that reviewed potential elementary facilities solutions and provided input to the Board. 

As a part of the EFAC process, the District identified four key elementary facilities needs:

  • Repair or replace major building systems

  • Modernize learning environments

  • Accommodate 4K students

  • Ensure room for a modest projected increase in elementary enrollment

“The District has an ongoing commitment to providing the best possible learning environments for our students,” said Vodak. “We have identified a series of deficiencies in our elementary schools and developed plans to address these issues.  We look forward to hearing more from the community as we contemplate next steps and thank survey participants in advance for their input.”

The facilities planning survey will be distributed to all households and will appear in mailboxes next week.  Data will be reported to the board on May 20, 2024 (tentative).
