Chilton Public School District to Survey Community


Chilton Public School District to Survey Community


The Chilton Public School District and Board of Education will be proactively conducting a community survey this fall to assess long-range district needs.

A paper copy of the survey will be mailed to each household in the district in October. It will invite community members to participate online, which would reduce the overall cost. Residents will have until November 11th to respond and provide their input.

The Board of Education will be asking residents to help develop specific solutions to an anticipated budget shortfall averaging $400,000 for each of the next two years. The survey will address topics such as budgeting and board planning, district communications, programs, staffing, funding support and overall satisfaction.

"We anticipate that these budget difficulties will continue into the future, and are asking the community's guidance to determine how to best address this challenge," said District Superintendent Dr. Claire Martin.

The survey will be designed and administrated by School Perceptions LLC, an independent research firm that specializes in gathering and analyzing public perceptions regarding schools.

"The goal of this process is to create a budgetary plan that reflects the goals and priorities of the taxpayers," said Dr. Martin. "We know that financially this is a difficult time for many people. However, we need an understanding of what people really want from the School District as we provide educational opportunities for the students of the Chilton community."

A report on survey results will be presented to the Board of Education on November 28th. A compilation of survey questions and results will also be posted on the District website.

For more information on the upcoming survey, please contact the District office at (920) 849-8109.

Additional Bus Stop Added at Diane Street


Additional Bus Stop Added at Diane Street


The Chilton Public School District has announced that an additional bus stop will be added to the area near Diane Street. By law, the school district is not required to transport students who live less than two miles away from school. But the law also states that if an area that is less two miles from school is declared by law enforcement as potentially dangerous to the safety of children, then district transportation services may be used to transport students in that hazardous area. The area on Diane street south of U.S. HWY 151 has been declared a hazardous area due to the absence of sidewalks on a four-lane highway with moderate traffic and a 40 MPH speed zone. As such, the school district has been picking students up at the corner of Diane Street and Steenport lane for many years.

According to Dr. Timothy Schaid, high school principal and the district's transportation coordinator, the pick-up point at Diane Street and Steenport lane was chosen because at the time it was the only place the bus could stop and still be able to safely turn around for egress back onto U.S. HWY 151. With the area being further developed over the past several years, there is now the ability for the bus to make an additional stop and still be able to safely turn around. As such, beginning with the first day of school on September 1, a bus will be making the following stops in the area of Diane Street on the south side of U.S. HWY 151:

• Stop 1 = Corner of Diane Street and Jemima Lane (bus will then turn around in the cul-de-sac on Jemima Lane)
• Stop 2 = Corner of Diane Street and Steenport Lane (bus will then exit this area onto U.S. HWY 151 where it will resume its normal route)

Parents who have any questions or concerns regarding this change or about the school district's bussing services are encouraged to contact Dr. Tim Schaid at Chilton High School by calling 920-849-2358 or through e-mail at schaidt@chilton.k12.wi.us.
