Severe Weather and School Closings

A message from Dr. Claire Martin.........

A question that many people ask me – especially during the cold winter months is, "How cold does it have to be in order to close school?" Although there really is no "hard and fast" rule, the general standard/guideline that the Chilton Public Schools follow for school closings due to severe cold and wind chills is: -20 degrees temperature, and/or with sustained wind chills of -35 and below. There needs to be some point at which this decision is made. This is the guideline that I follow when making the decision for school cancellations or delays due to severely cold temperatures and/or wind chills.

The following letter was sent to Senator Devin LeMahieu and Representative Paul Tittl by the Chilton Board of Education:

To Senator Devin LeMahieu and Representative Paul Tittl,

As the elected officials representing the School District of Chilton, we, the members of the Chilton Board of Education, respectfully request that you work with your legislative colleagues to support increased funding for public education in the current budget proposal for the benefit of all Wisconsin public school students.

Prior to 1993, when revenue limits were put into place to control increases to taxpayers, the School District of Chilton was a low spending District. Since that time, our District has remained a low spending District. Our current per pupil expenditures are below the State average. For 2013-2014, the state average for instructional costs (general and special education funds) per student were $13,291; Chilton's instructional costs were $10,516 or 21% below the state average. The state average revenue per student (general and special education funds) was $13,390; Chilton's revenue was only $10,405, again, 22% below the state average. Through careful management and planning, we have worked diligently to control costs while still providing an excellent educational program that focuses on all students reaching their potential. As a low spending district, we believe we continue to be penalized through a state funding system that provides less and less support to our efforts, while levels of accountability rise, student poverty increases, and student needs (ELL and Special Education) grow exponentially.
