Southern Door County Schools Face Budget Deficit

 

Budgeting for the future, technology and energy were a few topics discussed at the Southern Door “Back to the Future” Educational Summit on Wednesday night. Southern Door School District Superintendent Patti Vickman told the 113 attendees that the school board will hold two special meetings this week regarding the budget and a possible referendum.

Vickman says the board will have to look closely at how much they can curtail programming and other services while maintaining the excellent standards the district currently holds.

Along with staff members, Vickman also spoke about progress the district has made in areas community members highlighted as important at a summit in June. 

Since that first summit, the district has developed a 3-year technology plan that will put new computers in each classroom for the teachers, assure that each classroom has the same basic tech tools and implement a new phone system by June. The district has also made steps to increase leadership opportunities for students, reduce its carbon footprint and encourage community wellness.

The school board will meet Monday night to discuss feedback they gathered at the summit regarding the budget and possibly draft a referendum later in the week.
