VOTE FOR WENDY
Updated: Mar 6
I am a dedicated community servant with 27 years of volunteer experience with Mequon-Thiensville School District and Mequon-Thiensville Education Foundation
I am an active listener and transparent. My contact information is on the district website. https://www.mtsd.k12.wi.us/board/school-board
I ensured all stakeholders who wished to address the Board during the Citizen Communication and Comments (Policy #9125) portion of our Regular Business Meeting on July 26, 2021 spoke. https://vimeo.com/583112838
As part of the Leadership Team I ensured board meetings were accessible to all including true hybrid meetings via Zoom and in-person commencing June 21, 2021 to ensure public access for all
I advocate for educational equity for ALL students via the board’s effective governance model. (https://www.mtsd.k12.wi.us/board/governance) via our Guiding Principles (https://www.mtsd.k12.wi.us/district/educational-philosophy) leveraging our Equity Non-Negotiables which are embedded in board Policy #2018 (https://go.boarddocs.com/wi/mtsd/Board.nsf/goto?open&id=AX8KZY5435D8)
As part of the board I helped to create
our mission: “Together, we ignite each student’s passion for learning, preparing for a lifetime of infinite possibilities”
our vision: “Each student, every time, empowered to succeed”
and voted to approve our strategic plans, most recently for 2021-2024, which guides our mission, vision
our strategic direction
our 10-year Long Range Master Plan for facilities and learning environments
Together, after unanimous vote of support from a task force comprised of community stakeholders, the board acted to approve the resolution for a $55.7 million referendum election for District-wide school facilities improvement for safety, security, site and ADA improvements and renovations, school additions and furnishings, fixtures and equipment (https://go.boarddocs.com/wi/mtsd/Board.nsf/Public#) that our supportive community approved by a 58% yes to 42% no vote.
I AM ADAMANT POLITICS MUST STAY OUT OF OUR SCHOOLS, POLITICAL AGENDAS AND THE INFLUENCE OF NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS MUST NOT HIJACK OUR NON-PARTISAN SCHOOL BOARD.
