A large number of high school students made the trip to Madison last week for Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days, including over 20 from Sturgeon Bay High School. The students were divided up into groups and met with legislators and state agencies to discuss the delegation’s five key agenda items. One of those items was the opposition to repealing the statewide standard for a school start date, which provided interesting conversation for Sturgeon Bay School District Superintendent Dan Tjernagel.
Delegates also discussed various water quality concerns and requested adequate funding for harbor assistance programs and rural broadband Internet access. The next Door/Kewaunee Legislative Days will be in 2019.
