Safety and security topped the wish list of community members who gave their opinion on future improvements to Southern Door School District during a listening session on Wednesday. Approximately 20 people attended the session, agreeing the timing was right to look at improving the facilities while laying out specific areas they want the school board to consider before deciding on whether or not they will go to referendum this fall. Superintendent Patti Vickman says Wednesday’s session validated previous discussions they have had over the years, which include addressing the building’s ADA compliance and providing more current instructional spaces.
Vickman says the school board will consider the findings at its retreat on Monday. If the board decides to go to a referendum, it has until August 28 to submit the question to be included on the fall ballot.
