Long Range Facilities Plan
The Mequon-Thiensville School District is in the initial stages of developing a long-range vision for its facilities, a comprehensive process the district is calling “A Framework for Our Future.” The ultimate goal of the project is for the framework to reflect a community vision for its public schools. The process includes establishing common priorities in
- building capacity
- capital maintenance projects
- modern learning environment enhancements
- safety and security
- co-curricular and recreational program opportunities
The strategic framework will go beyond just facility needs—such as building capacity and environments. We’ll also be working to identify creative funding opportunities so that interested community partners can support special projects that will enhance the educational and recreational experience of our students and for the community.
The school district is partnering with Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA) to help facilitate the development of this all-encompassing 10-year framework that aligns the organization’s current reality, impending forecasts, strategic direction, and the community’s priorities. EUA has a proven track record in long-range planning in K-12 education, and a clear focus on authentic public engagement.
Help Shape the FuturePublic engagement is essential in a process such as this. Developing a Framework for Our Future requires input from the community’s stakeholders, including families, students, school district employees, community members, and area organizations and businesses. We value the community’s perspective and cannot do this work without input and a range of perspectives.
Community members are invited and encouraged to attend a community workshop to learn more and share input on the future of MTSD facilities. Three 90-minute community workshops have been planned in order to share information with the community about this project, and gather feedback to inform the long-range framework that will guide the district’s facilities work going forward. Each workshop will provide an opportunity to learn more about our facility challenges and offer feedback on the plan going forward. All community members are welcome to attend one of the following workshops.
- Thursday, April 4 at 10 a.m.
- Tuesday, April 9 at 3 p.m.
- Tuesday, April 9 at 6 p.m.
All workshops will be held at Range Line School located at 11040 N. Range Line Road.
Community members can help us plan for the workshop by indicating which session they would like to attend by completing an RSVP. Please note that all are welcome and an RSVP is not required in order to attend.
