Williams Bay School District residents are being asked to complete a Facilities Assessment Survey. The survey contains important facts and conveys the message that the school is a cornerstone of the community. 

For a hundred years, the elementary building has been mended, adjusted and adapted. For the last 40 years, residents have worked to safeguard the district and broaden the learning experience. Twenty years ago, the school board and a team of dedicated individuals purchased 80 acres and built the current junior/senior high school with a long-range plan to combine all district functions on one site. 

The current board sees the wisdom in planning for the next 50 years by developing a site plan and drawing together all school operations for a more efficient and cost-effective system. The board brought together professionals to analyze the buildings and determine the possibilities and costs. The results were studied by community volunteers to recommend a plan. Now professionals are making suggestions about needs, trends and expectations.

Living on a fixed income is a challenge, but so is raising children. Keeping an attractive school district is one way to keep property values strong and tax levies fair.

The district has been blessed with a dedicated staff and outstanding students who are now being recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction with a School of Recognition Award. Today's children deserve the same educational support you and your children had. Complete your survey and support tomorrow's scholars.
