ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) — The Onalaska School District is asking residents to take a survey to evaluate and provide input on the district’s most pressing facility and operational needs.

The anonymous survey features information and a series of questions on school facilities and operational needs stemming from rising expenses because of inflation and inadequate funding support from the state during the past decade, according to district officials.

“We would like to invite our entire community, including all adults, high school students and staff members, to take this survey and give us your thoughts on these important issues facing our local schools,” said school board President Ann Garrity.

“The input and feedback of our community will be a major factor in the board’s decision-making process,” Garrity said.

The survey is the result of the work of the district’s Facilities Task Force Committee, which spent several months crafting a series of recommendations that it presented to the board in April.

The survey, which takes about 15 minutes to complete, will be available at www.onalaskasurvey.org through the end of the day on Friday, June 3.
