Mequon-Thiensville School District


We began a process to thoroughly assess facilities and learning environments in fall 2018, partnering with Eppstein Uhen Architects to help facilitate the development of an all-encompassing 10-year framework aligning the organization’s current reality, impending forecasts, strategic direction, and the community’s priorities.

The resulting long-range master plan for facilities, a Framework For Our Future, identified strengths in facilities, along with a number of challenges and opportunities for improvement. However, district leaders determined it was unrealistic to address the scope of all challenges identified in the plan.

A Community Task Force was assembled to review and consider the long-range master plan and other information, establish priorities, and make recommendations to district leaders and the board of education.

Following receipt of the recommendations of the task force, district administrators sponsored a community-wide survey with the goal to understand school community priorities. Mequon and Thiensville community members, district families, and employees were asked to share their opinions and provide guidance on next steps. The survey was open through December 4, 2019. All district residents received a mailed invitation to complete the survey.
