Hudson (Press Release) - The Hudson School District needs the community's help in finding the best long-term space for learning solution for students in grades 6-12. District residents are invited to attend one of two community conversations on either November 29th or December 6th. Both evenings will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in the Dining Hall on the YMCA Camp St. Croix Campus; 532 County Road F across from River Crest Elementary School.
The community conversations will be facilitated by staff from the UW-Extension Service St. Croix County. Community members will have an opportunity to discuss 21st Century learning and what that means to them, what types of facilities best support the concept of 21st Century learning, and finally what do community members see as the best long-term 21st Century learning solution for Hudson's students in grades 6-12. It is the district's hope to have a wide range of opinions as part of these two evenings of conversation. Participants do not need to have background in or prior knowledge of district facility planning in order to attend. The Board of Education will receive all of the information and solutions that are discussed during the two evenings.
With the elimination of St. Croix Meadows as a secondary school site, the Board of Education is committed to finding a long-term solution to secondary space for learning that the community will support. Both Hudson Middle School and Hudson High School are over capacity with student enrollment projections showing continued growth at both schools. Providing Hudson students with learning space that supports the development of 21st Century knowledge and skills is critical to their continued success now and in the future as Hudson High School graduates.
If you are interested in attending one of the Community Conversation meetings please R.S.V.P. to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 715.377.3795, this will help in planning. If you are unable to attend one of the meetings but would like to share your ideas you can complete the brief Long-Term Space for Learning survey on the district's website at www.hudson.k12.wi.us. The community is urged to stay involved in the process of determining the best solution. Updates on the Board's actions will be posted on the district's website.
