The Martin County West School District facilities has been a topic of discussion for the MCW School Board for a number of years. These discussions have resulted in the addition of the Science wing at the MCw Jr/Sr High School; updating the heating and ventilation systems and lighting at both elementary schools; and replacing the heating system at the Jr/Sr High School. The most recent discussions have revolved around some key facilities questions:
- Should the District update the schools in Sherburn and Trimont to provide more secure entrances, update the restrooms, and add on to the cafeteria/kitchen at MCW Jr/Sr High?
- What is the plan for the facility in Welcome - should it be renovated or closed and torn down?
- Should the disitrict consider adding gym space to the MCW Jr/Sr High School?
With these questions in mind, the MCW School Board is asking for your feedback to develop a long-term facilities plan for Martin County West. You will be receiving a survey in the mail in early May. This survey contains detailed information about each of the options listen above. This information includes the potential updates at each site, the estimated cost for each site, and the tax impact of each option.
Your feedback about these facilities about these facilities options is extremely important as we work to develop a plan. Please take a few minutes to read through and complete the survey either online or via regular mail. All surveys are due May 31.
Requests for additional copies of the survey for eligible voters can be made by contacting Jessica Maday (507-764-2330) or stopping at the Martin County West Central Office. Any questions regarding the survey can be directed to Superintendent Allison Schmidt (507-764-2330).
