We are asking all voters in the Middleton-Cross Plains area to participate in this survey to evaluate the District's needs, consider possible solutions, including an operational referendum, and contribute feedback regarding our current and future budget challenges.
The District held five community and two staff engagement sessions earlier this spring. We recorded one of the zoom presentations, so all community members have the opportunity to watch it on their own time. You can view that presentation and read our Frequently asked questions on our website.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming postcard we are sending to every home in our District!
You can use the QR code to access the survey. Simply open your camera application, hover over the qr code, and click the banner that pops up on your screen. You can also type in this URL link on your desktop. www.mcpasdsurvey.org
Another option is to pick up a paper copy of the survey at the following locations:

The anonymous survey will close on May 17 at 11:59 p.m.
Every adult in our community is invited to participate. The estimated time to complete the survey is 15 minutes.
We have some important information regarding our updated COVID-19 Protocols.
Proof of a negative PCR test will no longer be required to return to school after testing positive for COVID-19, experiencing illness symptoms, or having close contact with someone with COVID-19.
MCPASD will now accept a negative lab-based antigen test to return to school after experiencing illness symptoms or if unvaccinated and close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
Lab-based antigen tests are available at our district testing sites.
Lab-based antigen test results return in less than 1 hour instead of the 24-72 hours required for PCR results. Our goal is to reduce waiting times for test results in order to keep our students and staff in school. We are seeing an uptick in recent days in positive student and staff cases of COVID 19. Thank you for being diligent about getting your children tested and keeping symptomatic students home.
Our District is excited to announce our community businesses that have signed on to sponsor our two print publications.
Thank you to Scooter's Coffee, Amy Helt Photography, Spencer Real Estate Group and CI Pediatric Therapy Centers for supporting our schools. You are appreciated!
