Media Release – 6/4/2020

Dear Community:

The Wisconsin Heights School District has been developing a facilities plan that will address all school buildings. Both Black Earth and Mazomanie Elementary Schools are in need of significant
renovation. The Middle/High School needs heating and ventilation repair.

To address the elementary schools, one possible solution identified through a facilities study is to combine the existing elementary schools into one single site, by adding a 4-year-old
kindergarten through grade 5 elementary wing onto the Middle/High School. This would create a one-campus school district. In a recent community survey, the majority of the respondents
indicated that a one-campus district was the most preferred option, rather than investing nearly as much to repair the existing elementary schools.

Following the guidance provided by respondents to a recent survey, the Wisconsin Heights Board of Education is continuing to investigate long-range facility plans. They are hosting
virtual community conversations open to the public on this topic.

Interested staff, parents, and community members are invited to attend Wisconsin Heights School District Virtual Community Conversations on June 10 or June 16 via Zoom video-
conferencing – there will also be a call-in option. Jordan Sinz, District Administrator and Jim Wede, Performance Services, will share preliminary plans for the wing; potential remodeling
work, outline the process and the factors that are being considered in a possible plan; and gather any questions that participants have so that the Board of Education and District
leadership fully understand the community’s input.

Please go to https://www.wisheights.k12.wi.us/community-conversations/ to find a community conversation that works for you. Each date and time has a unique link so that you may
participate.

Thank you!
