HLWW site task force to seek public input

By Linda Schroeder

Before the end of the month, the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted (HLWW) Site Task Force will be seeking input from every resident of the school district through a questionnaire that will be mailed to every district resident.

The task force has completed its second facilities update, which will be sent to district residents along with the questionnaire. District residents should receive the update and questionnaire around Monday, Sept. 27.

One of the continuing goals of the task force is to keep everyone in the HLWW district updated on what's happening related to facility and site decisions.

According to Joe Campbell, site task force co-chair, "The more we all share a common understanding of the decision-making process, the more we'll all be prepared to make an informed choice on a facilities referendum sometime next year ­ a choice we'll be making on behalf of students, taxpayers, and the future of the HLWW district."

Hearing from district residents will help the task force and the school board determine how district residents feel about the school district as a whole, as well as about various site options under consideration for locating a new high school.

"We're looking forward to hearing from district residents on these important issues," said Jack Littfin, site task force cochair. "We encourage everyone to take the time to read the update and then fill out the questionnaire and return it to the task force. Public input will be one of the factors that will help the task force determine the most appropriate site recommendation to bring to the school board for its consideration."

Look for more information about the update and questionnaire in the next two weeks.
