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.

- What did the Community Task Force study and ultimately recommend?
- What are the district's facility needs?
- How has the community been engaged and informed?
- Is district enrollment growing?
- Is the school district planning to ask the community for support through a referendum?
- When was the last time MTSD asked the community for support through a referendum?
- Why can't the school district use Range Line, the school that was shuttered when enrollment was declining, to address future growth needs?
- Why can't the district address its facility needs with its maintenance budget?
- How can I stay up-to-date on this process?
- Who can I contact with questions?
