After more than three years of extensive research and community input, the Waunakee Community School Board has created a flexible long-range Facilities Master Plan intended to meet the needs of our students and reflect the priorities of our community. Based on this feedback, Waunakee residents will vote on two separate questions; one to borrow funds specifically for facility construction and the other to support the ongoing operational costs associated with the added space. While related, Wisconsin law requires that each of these questions be presented separately for individual vote.
