Open thread: January 2023
Topic: The Wausau School District restructuring plan
It’s that time of the month again! Our Wausonian open threads are a chance for everyone, regardless of subscriber status, to comment with your point of view.
This month we’re talking about the Wausau School District’s plan to restructure its schools in a pretty significant way. Administrators say it’s necessary with the decline in enrollments and the difficulties of having too few students spread out amongst too many buildings.
But opponents point out the difficulties in transportation that will result, amongst a number of other challenges. Some have said they will open enroll out of the district if these changes are approved.
I’ve heard both publicly and privately, both support for the plan and against. Both have come from current teachers as well as parents.
In case you missed it, this story was sent to everyone that breaks down the plan in detail:
As always, you’re free to comment on any story or any other Wausau-related topic you care to. Unlike most of our stories, all readers are able to comment on open threads.
This story, on the Granite Peak additional expansion, garnered a lot of attention. There will be more coming out soon about this (as in, this weekend) for paid subscribers.
Other stories in January appear below, some for free and others for paid subscribers only.
I’ll be sending out a date for the coffee meetup for Founding Member subscribers soon - Founding Members keep an eye on your email! This time I will send it through both Substack and from the email@example.com account to ensure you get it.
Thanks and have a great month!
