To help the Clintonville School District with its facilities analysis and future planning, the district is looking for help from the community.

At its meeting Monday, the Clintonville School Board voiced a need for a committee of 20 to 30 people to review data and help with the planning.

“It would be ideal that the committee be comprised of representation from many stakeholders — including staff, board, administration, parents, community, business and civic leaders,” said Dr. David Dyb, superintendent.

The board unanimously selected Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc., of Appleton, to work with the district on its facility analysis and strategic facilities plan.

Committee meetings are scheduled to take place at Clintonville High School, most likely on June 3, June 13, June 17, July 8, July 15, Aug. 5 and Aug. 19, all from 6-8 p.m. Committee members would be expected to attend all the meetings.

The district is seeking input on its facilities plan as it contemplates a referendum. On April 4, 2017, voters turned down the district’s proposed $24.9 million referendum 1,140-733. The plan at the time was to raze the Rexford-Longfellow Elementary School complex and the historical 1918 building. The referendum would have constructed a new elementary school facility at the same location.

Community members who would like information or are interested in joining the committee can call Dyb at 715-823-7215, ext. 2604.
