Dr. Dana Monogue Presenting to a group

Since the Fall of 2021, the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District has been working to engage the community regarding the need for an operational referendum.

After various engagement sessions and a survey sent to the community, the majority of the feedback was in support of the District placing an operational referendum question on the November 8th ballot.  

On August 8, 2022, the Board of Education approved the motion. The next step is to continue engaging our community through in-person and virtual conversations.

The district has already finalized more than 40 engagement sessions in the coming weeks with groups in our area, including school parent-teacher groups, staff meetings, and local community organizations. 

Five community conversations will be open to all residents in the Middleton-Cross Plains Area. Two will be in-person and three will be virtual. 

During these conversations, led by Superintendent Dr. Dana Monogue, the community will receive more information about why an operational referendum is needed, what’s behind the District’s financial challenges, and how the District has saved more than $6 million over the past two years. Residents will also have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.
