WBSDPTF To Present to School Board Tomorrow at 1730

After months of work, the West Bend School District Private Task Force is going to present our findings to the West Bend School Board tomorrow afternoon at 5:30. For some background, the Task Force was formed after the failed school referendum in April to take a hard look at the facilities issues cited in the referendum and offer some independent findings.

I was a bit dubious going into the work, but found it enlightening and enriching. We did a lot of work. We toured buildings, interviewed staff, dug through reports, spoke with many local contractors, got architectural designs and quotes, looked at neighboring districts, debated, argued, and finally reached some consensus.

The Task Force will be sharing some bold findings, but I hope it is the beginning of a different conversation about the direction of our school district.

Please attend the meeting or catch the live stream. For those who would like to see me put on pants and come out of my basement, I will be presenting a portion too.

5:30 PM at the District Offices located at 735 S. Main St. West Bend.

Come on by. You should be home before the Packer game.

    Eh.. optional

    Wear a shirt – make your Mom proud.

    Not sure if I can make the meeting or get home in time to catch it on Community TV. 5:30 is a bad time for me today.

    Hopefully Washington County Insider will upload a clip of you in pants & shirt.

    Good luck with your presentation – I look forward to seeing a link to the report after it is submitted to the School Board.

    No shirt, no service.

    That reminds me:  shoes??

  5. Owen

    I’m thinking either my Crocs or Uggs. Any recommendations?

    How would our resident libertarian restaurateur handle the no shirt, no pants, no shoes, no service thing?

    I think restaurants have plates.

    @ John Foust:  I think restaurants have plates.

    Yes some do, some don’t.

    And I think libertarians say “live and let live” instead of “You’re going to Hell, you Maoist sinner.”
