It will help set goals and priorities for the next few years. 

Superintendent Kelli Jacobi is inviting the public to a series of meetings Wednesday and Thursday…to offer feedback and suggestions.

“Such as, what do you want the district to look like 5 years from now?  What are some things that are going really well in this district?  What are some things that you think need to be strengthened?  And then the school board will be reviewing all of the data that comes from these meetings.” 

An interim 2-year plan comes to an end this school year. 

Jacobi says the last time the district re-worked its strategic plan, public concerns centered around financial stability and communication within the district and with the community.

Jacobi says those who can’t make the meetings can also respond to a survey online.

“We would encourage everybody to find a way to share what they hope to see for the district in the future.  Strengths, weaknesses, concerns  – we want to make Rhinelander a fabulous school district and community and we want everybody to have a say in that.” 

The school board will decide whether to adopt a 3-year or a 5-year plan this time around.

Sessions will be:

Wednesday, June 4th from 10-11:30 at the Rhinelander District Library

Wednesday, June 4th 5:30-7:30 at the Rhinelander High School Library

Thursday, June 5th 10-11:30 at the YMCA Multipurpose Room

Thursday, June 5th 6:30 to 8 at the District Administrative Center at Rhinelander High School.
