A survey aimed at gathering feedback on the long-term facilities plan for the Phillips School District has been mailed to all households in the district. Community members have until Oct. 25 to fill out the survey, which will help inform the school board of education’s future decisions.
Over the last three years, the district has explored several potential solutions to address the aging elementary school, which was originally built in the 1950s.
“The school district is an integral part of our community therefore we want to ensure we are moving forward with a solution that reflects the priorities of our taxpayers,” said school superintendent Rick Morgan. “We encourage all residents to share their feedback by taking the survey, which has been delivered to all district households and will be open through Oct. 25.”
The district is working with School Perceptions LLC, an independent firm with expertise in conducting community surveys. Feedback provided through the survey process is confidential and collected by School Perceptions.
All residents with mailing addresses in the Phillips School District should have received a four-page survey in the mail, which also includes a random survey access number that can be used once. Residents can either respond online using the instructions printed on the front of the survey or fill out the paper survey and return it in the survey’s enclosed, postage-paid envelope.
Household with more than one adult interested in providing a response can request an additional survey number or paper survey by calling the Phillips School District at (715) 339-2419.
The community is invited to hear the results of the survey at the Board of Education meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6 in the Middle School Learning Center.
The results of the survey, as well as information on the facility planning work to date, will be available on the district website at www.phillips.k12.wi.us.
