What are the top issues facing this district/municipality and how would you work to resolve it?

Now, as always, the top concern facing Monroe and many other districts in Wisconsin is funding. Second to funding is the importance of employing and retaining expert, qualified staff. Working to manage these issues takes, experience, patience and the ability to work on solutions that will last for the long term.

What are other key issues facing the district/municipality, and how would you work to resolve them?

Specific to Monroe is our need to address our buildings and grounds. We need to look at repairs to buildings, utilizing our space to meet 21st Century learning and teaching styles, and enhance the security in our buildings for all who use our facilities. This work is an ongoing process; the goal is to maximize our resources for greatest effect.
