Verona Area School District voters can cast ballots Tuesday to decide
whether the school board is authorized to borrow $8.35 million to purchase three pieces of land for future,
yet-undetermined school buildings.
The April 7 election will also feature a Dist. 3 Common Council race
between incumbent Luke Diaz and
challenger Rod Wealti, as well as
uncontested races in VASD and the
Town of Verona.

Diaz, who was elected in 2013,
will get a chance to keep his seat next
Tuesday. The 33-year-old technical writer for Epic has championed
transparency and a focus on building
the downtown area in his two years
in office, and he is campaigning on

support for local nonprofit organizations such as the Verona Area Needs
Network and Verona Area Community Theater, both of which are planning
significant expansions this year.
Verona native Wealti, a 54-yearold lab technician at Sub Zero/Wolf,

politics.

Despite an austere state


budget that has drawn
sharp responses from
many school boards and
administrators, Verona
school officials arent
planning for major cuts at
the district level this year.
Gov. Scott Walker initially released a budget
with large cuts to school
funding in 2015-16 and
no opportunity for local
school boards to increase
property taxes, causing
concern about what that
could mean for local districts.
Verona Area School
District officials dont
expect Walkers exact
budget to be approved asis, however. If the usual
negotiations and changes
take place during the process before the Legislature
approves the 2015-17 budget and some funding is
restored, business manager

Chris Murphy and superintendent Dean Gorrell said


they have found other savings that could make up
whatever losses do occur.
Our goal would be on
a district-wide level to
go into next year with no
cuts, Gorrell said, adding
that specific sites might
see cuts as enrollment
fluctuates.
The savings come from
four places, Murphy told
the school board Monday
night, and total $1.4 million for 2015-16.
Murphy estimated the
worst-case scenario
the governors elimination
in 2015-16 of the expected
$150-per-pupil increase
in aid and no revenue cap
increase being approved
would cost the district $1.7
million. The three other
scenarios he outlined for
the year would all total
less than $1.4 million,
meaning the district could
sustain any of them without cutting staff.
Murphy said $200,000 is
expected to be saved from
actual salary costs compared to the assumptions

School raises over


109 pints of blood
BRIANNE HAGEMAN
Verona Press correspondent

Though it didnt raise


as much blood as previous
years, more than 150 students turned out to donate at
the annual Verona Area High
School blood drive March 12.
Due to deferrals and
donors who began giving
but couldnt finish, the actual
amount of blood donated
dropped from 137 pints last
year to 109 this year.
It still is the second-largest high school blood drive
in the state of Wisconsin,
as Verona is one of the few
schools in the state that
arranges a drive.
The school offers such a
simple and easy way to give
blood in a positive environment. Why would you
not donate if you arent eligible? said senior donor
Renee Gavigan.
According to American
Red Cross, 20 percent of all
blood donations come from
students. American Red
Cross reaches out to schools
and teenagers in order to
increase their chances of
becoming lifelong donors.
Having a good, first
worthwhile experience
donating blood makes people
more likely to donate in the
future, said VAHS blood
drive coordinator and teacher Rita Mortenson. I never
had this in my high school,

Senior Jessica Coyne, right, reads a book to Sammy Seymour while


she gives blood.

but just with doing this the


kids are more likely to give
because they experience the
process. I do this because I
know there is such a need.
With 164 students signing up to donate, the school
had 42 deferrals and 13 kids
who started but couldnt finish. This still left 109 people
donating throughout the day,
raising more 109 pints of
usable blood.
This year, the school had
eight student senior directors
who took charge coordinating the participants, designing the t-shirts, arranging

everyone was comfortable. The coordinators were

and Gabby Johnson. These
girls, along with other student volunteers, attended to
every donor, reading books,
such as Click Clack Moo
Cows that Type, to keep the
donors calm and occupied
during their donation.
I really like walking and
talking to people to make
them feel welcomed to this
blood drive, Johnson said.
It makes them more likely
to donate.
Mortenson said that the
blood drive was an overall
success, with hopes to raise
even more blood next year.
Many students had positive feedback for the drive
this year, saying they had a
good first experience donating.
It was a pretty easy process, and I felt great afterwards because I know I
helped people that really
needed it, said senior donor
Rachel Klein.

City of Verona

Scenic Ridge apartments return for permit

other mixed-use buildings


that are expected to begin
construction this year.
What could get Liberty
back on track though
likely not until 2016
could be the construction
of a $20 million hotel the
city approved plans for
last year. Without that, it
appears it will be playing catch-up for a while,
with the required valuation
jumping to $23.8 million
in 2017 and $28 million
in 2018 for the duration of
the TIF district.
In any event, the city
carries virtually no risk,
with letters of credit
already established in case
of a default.
There is also a new deal
the city recently provided
in TID 6, similar to that
with WBC. Last month
it approved a $700,000
payment to United Vaccines, payable when its
57,000-square-foot manufacturing facility is nearly
complete something
thats expected late this
year. That facility is also
expected to get a much
lower assessment than
its projected $20 million
cost, but the contract also
provides for shortfall payments if so.

The commission has
already approved the site
plan for the apartments, so all
that remains is a permit that
allows them to operate, something that will return to the
council again and is essentially a formality because of
the citys legal duty to act in
good faith based on previous
approvals and the apartment
plans meeting all other city

The owners of both


major commercial developments on the southeast
side will be required to
make shortfall payments to
the city for failing to meet
their TIF obligations.
City staff made
that entirely expected
announcement to the citys
Finance committee in late
March, producing data
showing the two will combine for a shortfall payment this year of more than
$150,000. Both payments
will be due July 31.
Neither is expected to be
a problem.
In one case, the development is exactly what
the city expected but was
assessed by the state at a
rate lower than anticipated.
In the other, the development appears to be headed
in the right direction for
future required payments
needed to support the taxincrement financing district they are in, TID 6.
TIF is a form of taxpayer
funding for redevelopment,
infrastructure, and other
community-improvement
projects. It combines the
increased revenues from
all taxing jurisdictions in
a designated district and is
only to be used for projects
would not exist but for
the use of TIF.
TID 6, created in 2000,
is set to expire in 2023. As
a result, squeezing both
developments Wisconsin Brewing Company on
the south, Liberty Business
Park on the other side of
County Hwy. M into a
financially sound payment
structure was a challenge.
Liberty Parks 2013
developers agreement
requires owner David
Reinke to provide more
than $28 million in
assessed value by 2019,
escalating in a series of
steps that started with
$12.8 million in tax year
2014. WBC was a simpler deal revolving around
a single building, and it
required Verona Technology Park developer John
K. Livesey the owner of

the building for now to


provide $3.75 million in
assessed value beginning
in 2014.
Both values provide the
tax level needed to make
payments on debts the city
assumed in order to give
the developers money up
front. In the case of WBC,
it was a $600,000 development incentive. In the
case of Liberty Park, it was
building roads and installing industrial-grade utility lines into the business
park.
WBC is short for a simple reason: the $4 million
building containing about
$5 million worth of brewing equipment was given
a state assessment at just
over $2 million because
of a complex and favorable system of assessing
manufacturing facilities.
So that shortfall is likely
to continue. However, if
it continues with plans to
build an expansion to its
facilities, including a bottling plant, as early as next
year, it could reach the target assessment.
Liberty Park has fallen
short of the amount of construction needed to meet
its goals. Put simply, its
behind an ambitious schedule. Development in the
park as of Jan. 1, 2014,
including increased land
value, is worth $7.8 million.
As of that date, neither
of the two office buildings
under construction had
even been started, meaning the 2015 assessment
released in August will be
higher. But the 2015 tax
year valuation also climbs
to $16.6 million, meaning
another shortfall is likely
despite there being two

Its already been through


a public hearing and gotten
a recommendation from the
Plan Commission, but the
third Scenic Ridge apartment
building faces another visit
to the commission next week
because of a Common Council directive.
The meeting, normally the
first Monday of the month, is
set for Wednesday because of
the election. It also will feature possible final approvals
for two new businesses site
plans on the southeast side of
the city and a fourth building
at Liberty Business Park, also
on the southeast side, as well
as the first look at a possible
expansion of Verona Veterinary Clinic.
The council delayed
approval of the apartments
by a month because of concerns about traffic from some
residents of the new southside neighborhood. Much
like with the Harmony Hills
subdivision uproar a couple
of years ago, single-family
homes went in well before
the apartments. But unlike
that situation, these apartments had been planned from
the start and have sought no
exceptions from the zoning
code.
Ald. Luke Diaz (Dist. 3)
asked at the March 9 council meeting to have the city
perform a traffic study at
the intersection where the

apartments are slated to go,


West Chapel Royal Drive
and Acker Lane, and send the
plans through the Plan Commission and the Public Works
and Public Safety committees
so recommended traffic controls would be in place before
approvals. After some discussion, Diaz got unanimous
agreement on the delay.
City engineer Bob Gundlach had explained that the
street, a wide collector, was
designed for far more traffic
than it will get, but he recommended a four-way stop and
cross walks to help protect
school children in the morning. Public Works and Public
Safety discussed the study at
length March 23 and declined
to put in the stop signs.
The traffic study projected
a maximum of 189 vehicle
trips at peak traffic times
even in the unrealistic scenario that all the traffic would
use Chapel Royal to exit in
the morning, and the engineer presenting it noted that
the standard federal traffic

Letters to the editor

Town hall plans are too grandiose


vehicles like plows and dump trucks
will have to slow to enter and exit
right over a blind hill in fast traffic.
Third, the grandiosity of the actual building and campus gives the
appearance that town officials are
not being good stewards of taxpayer
money.It could be argued that this
new facility is simply the desire of the
few people who work there and not a
necessity to improve actual services
for tax paying residents.A 40-space
parking lot?Culvers doesnt even
have 40 spaces.
Every decision has a cost/benefit
ratio.There is no question the Town
of Verona needs improved facilities,
with major improvements.However,
imagine if just half of this new building budget had been spent on renovating the existing infrastructure, fixing
town roads, even hiring employees to
improve plowing services? At what
cost is this benefit?

them is better notification.


If everyone in a subdivision
were aware of a planned apartment building, commercial building or some other non-single-family home before the Plan Commission first discussed it, theyd have
time to process, ask questions and
make recommendations to their
representatives before developers
came in with the expectation of
moving on to the next step. That
would take a lot of pressure off
commissioners and alders to move
forward.
I mean, I wish everyone in
Verona read the Press, but even if
they did, lets face it, theyre not
all going to read my Plan Commission previews on Page 3 and
catch the three paragraphs where
I mention a new apartment building. Its unrealistic for the city
to count on that as a notification
process, and the current rule in
which only adjacent properties (or
those within 200 feet) are notified
is woefully inadequate.
I dont care what other cities do,
what best practices are or whether
the city needs to come up with a
couple thousand dollars to budget
for it. There are plenty of options,
and the cost will be peanuts compared to the loss of trust some
people experience when they feel
blindsided by a new development
that they feel like they somehow
need to drop everything to fight.
Since people come to Verona
for good schools, safe streets and
quiet neighborhoods, this is going
to be repeated again and again
until something about the process
changes.
So expand the criteria for mail
notification, put up some signs
or at least gather some emails
and send out quick advisements:
Apartments are being proposed
for your neighborhood; heres

835-0339 513-3638

tinashomecleaning@gmail.com
adno=403356-01

where to get more information.


Ultimately, there would still be
complaints, of course, but new
apartments arent the bogeyman.
Unlike some alders, I think having
some apartments here is good for
the community.
I certainly dont want Verona
to be overrun with them or to
bend to every market whim, so
the citys phasing policy makes
perfect sense. But a building here
or there is not drastically changing the character of our city. And
like many others who now live in
houses, I started in an apartment
and then moved right down the
street when I felt comfortable with
our neighborhood and found a
house that fit our needs nearby.
And in terms of government
process, there was no good reason
whatsoever to delay those apartments this month. Nothing will
change about the proposal. Even
if neighbors tend to think of apartment developers as faceless, evil
invaders, the city cannot do so.
The postponement Ald. Luke
Diaz proposed after getting an
earful from his District 3 constituents and that the rest of the
council acquiesced to was, to
me, mostly theater. All the traffic
survey did is persuade alders not
to install a stop sign and put crosswalks in this spring instead of
next fall, when some apartments
will still be under construction.
I suppose it also made a few
people feel better.
But if you really want to make
people feel better, be proactive
rather than practicing damage
control.

hats happened at Scenic


Ridge earlier this month
is nothing new. People
getting upset about apartments
being built in their neighborhood
is a tale as old as time.
As is politicians bowing to
public pressure against their better
judgment.
Its not unlike what happened
just last summer at Scenic Ridge
or three years ago at Harmony
Hills. Or when
my neighbor
pouted a few
years ago that
the new Sawgrass Condominiums on
Enterprise Drive
were going to
ruin her view
Ferolie
of the Ice Age
Junction.
The common thread in all of
this is people tend to think of new
construction near their homes as
invasive, even if its been planned
for years. Nobody likes being
crowded. If theres an empty lot
next to your house, it might look
odd today, but youll prefer that
over a fence tomorrow.
One problem in these scenarios
is the timing. If the Siena Ridge
apartments in Harmony Hills had
been built first, there never would
have been a complaint. Ditto with
the three apartment buildings in
Scenic Ridge, none of which has
been built yet. And timing has
been a problem since the economy
started going downhill around
2007. Carefully planned subdivisions became take-what-you-canget.
Theres little the city can
do about that. But one thing it
could do to be more proactive
and reduce the risk of neighbors
believing the city has abandoned

In response to the March 3 article


stating residential support for the new
Town of Verona Town Hall, there are
many of us who do not not at all.
First, the cost of the land alone
($700,000) is almost the entire annual
operating budget for the town.This
new building is projected to cost just
$1 million, but anyone looking at the
beautiful renderings of the proposed
building and site would agree $1 million is an impossible underestimate.
Further, when questioned about
how the town can possibly afford to
move forward with only $300,000
left in this new Town Hall building
fund, town chair Dave Combs said
Well be OK. Oh, ok, whew.
Second, the town makes the argument that the location will be more
strategically accessible for residents.
Not only does this campus move
much farther away from south side
town residents, it is a frankly a dangerous location.Anyone who drives

Because of a reporting
error, the Verona Press
erroneously reported in a
story last week that United Vaccines site plan
had been approved by the
city. Editor Jim Ferolie
jumped the gun on this.
It actually had only gone
through initial review,
where it received universally positive comments.
It is up for site plan and
survey map approval this
month.
Due to a reporting
error, the original article said Park Printing
designed the Nicholas
Suite, Bo Ryans office,
the locker rooms and
display cases at the Kohl
Center. That work was
done by Zebra Dog Studios.
Information provided
to the Verona Press about
the Verona Area High
School play You Cant
Take It With You inaccurately stated the time
of the play as 7:30 p.m.,
which was published in
last weeks newspaper.
The play actually started
at 7 p.m. March 26-28.
The Press regrets the
errors.

in order to help clean up the
Sugar River.
Upcoming volunteer
clean-up days will be held
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on
Saturdays April 11, 25 and
May 9.
Capitol Water Trails, in
partnership with the Upper
Sugar River Watershed
Association, helps to clear
downed trees and remove
trash in the Sugar River
numerous times each year.
On the first work day,
volunteers will focus on the
stretch of the Sugar River
from Bobcat Lane to Valley
Road in the Town of Verona (2.3 river miles).
On the second work day
April 25, volunteers will
work from Valley Road to
Hwy. 69 (3.4 river miles).
On the third work day
May 9, volunteers will
focus on the stretch from
Hwy. 69 to Canal Street in
downtown Paoli (3.4 river
miles).

All volunteers can meet


at Paoli Park along Highway PB 15 minutes prior to
the start time.
Volunteers should dress
appropriately. It is recommended to wear a pair of
old tennis shoes and clothing that dries easily. Waders are also recommended,
but not necessary as people
are also needed on land to
help those working in the
water.

Where Are You Going?


Someone recently remarked, in jest, that he was going
to Hell after telling a joke that was a bit indelicate, even if
it wasnt exactly blasphemous. His remark got me thinking about the ultimate destination of our souls, and what
we ought to think and profess about that. There are some
who say we should profess a high degree of certainty
about going to heaven, perhaps in the hope that believing
it strongly enough might make it true, or perhaps just in
the hope that we can raise the bar a bit on our morals by
professing that we are future saints. St. Paul tells us that
we are saved by faith rather than by works, but he is quick
to add that we shouldnt boast. (Romans 3: 26-27) Who
is so sure of their own faith, after all? Isnt it Gods job to
examine our hearts and decide whether we are going to
heaven or not, and isnt the more humble approach to say
that we just dont know, and should not presume to decide
for God? It certainly isnt obvious that any of us deserves
eternal bliss, or that our professions of faith will grant us
instant entry into heaven. Since all have sinned and fallen
short, perhaps the more honest and humble approach
would be to say that we just dont know where were going,
but that we certainly hope were going to heaven.
Christopher Simon
They have all fallen away; they are all alike depraved;
there is none that does good, no, not one.

Fixing a hole?

*Gov. Walkers initial proposal


Source: VASD

VASD adjustments
Salary assumptions:
$200,000
Retiree replacement:
$270,000
FTE Changes: $120,000
Borrowed funds:
$820,000
Total: $1.4 million

Budget: Expected to change


Continued from page 1
the district previously made
in preparing for the budget,
$270,000 would come from
younger teachers replacing
retiring teachers who are at
the top of the salary schedule, $120,000 from fulltime employees that are not
being used this year due to
lower enrollment than projected and $820,000 from
recent borrowing the board
approved.
The first three items
would be recurring savings
that generally happen every
year. The $820,000 would
be a one-time savings, Murphy said, which wouldnt
help the district sustain
overall annual cuts. However, it would work in this
case, he said, because the
governor proposed $165 in
per-pupil funding increases
for districts in the second
year of the biennium.
The district would like to
avoid using that $820,000
if possible, Murphy said,
as it would otherwise sit
in a fund and gain interest.
Board member Tom Duerst
also questioned the practice
of using one-time money to
fund yearly costs.
Theres some concern on
my part, Duerst said.
Gorrell agreed that it was
not a good long-term strategy, but its basically a
backup plan, as he doesnt
expect the budget thats
coming this year to be the
continuing model for school
funding.
We dont take that lightly, because we generally
havent done that, but we
dont see this as a long-term
proposition from the state,
either, Gorrell said.
The $820,000 would
come from bonds the board
added on to a refinancing
of $25 million it borrowed
last year to fund the new
employee retirement benefits program. Because of
favorable interest rates, the
board chose to borrow additional money when it had
the chance at the recommendation of PMA Securities.
Board president Dennis
Beres also said having the
$820,000 as an option to
plug the hole is helpful to
avoid giving sites bad news
such as layoff notices and
then taking those back if the
state budget were to change
late in the process.
We might not have to use
this by the time everything
is said and done, Beres
said. If our doomsday does
come, we have this to plug
that hole.
Murphy and VASD director of human resources
Jason Olson said they expect
the number of retirees to
grow next year, as well,
which would save even
more money for the district
as it brings in replacements
at the lower end of the salary
schedule.

Above, Bradan Graham, 5, works at a crochet station. Below,


Kellen Kemp, 3, of Verona, admires his creation.

The district is behind its


normal budget timeline of
getting information to sites,
which prompted Mondays
discussion so administrators
can begin to approach sites.
Well be getting information out to our sites and
site councils shortly, Gorrell said.
Gorrell and board members also acknowledged a
looming major cost increase
coming in July 2016, when
the current health insurance
plan expires.
The predictions are kind
of scary, Gorrell said.
Theyre predicting anywhere from a 30 to 50 percent premium increase.
That could amount to $2
to 5 million, he said, adding
that the district has saved an
estimated $8.1 million over
the four years of the current
contract.
That was a pretty good
deal, but now youve got to
pay the piper, he said.
He said the district is
looking at changes to set up
the next contract.

Girls lacrosse season opens


The Verona Area High School girls lacrosse team began the 2015 season Saturday. The girls played
three non-conference games in Waukesha.
The Wildcats defeated Mukwonago but lost to Maine South (Illinois) and Waukesha West. They begin
conference play with a home game against Madison Westside on April 14.

Keyes goes deep in Wildcats win


JEREMY JONES
Sports editor

Senior Kori Keyes and junior


Alyssa Erdman keyed a 12-0 Big
Eight Conference and season debut
for the Verona Area High School
softball team Tuesday evening at
Thomas Jefferson Middle School.
Keyes went 3-for-4 with three
RBIs in the blowout against Madison West, while Erdman struck out
six, walked one and allowed three
hits in her debut as the teams ace.
The Wildcats finished last season with a 22-3 overall record (171 conference) en route to their first
state appearance since 2010.
Keyes was a big part of Veronas
success last season and she didnt
miss a beat Tuesday.
Following a pop out in the first,
Keyes dug in and belted a 0-1 fastball over the center-field fence to
spark a decisive 5-run third inning.
The first pitch was a high strike
and the next was an inside fastball.
I was able to get my hips and bat
through the zone and got the ball up
in the air, Keyes said.
The ping of the bat and the balls
flight trajectory left little doubt.
(Assistant coach) Michelle (Schreier) told me to ease up around first
base, Keyes said with a smile.
The senior captain wasnt done,
however, adding an RBI single in
the fifth.
Erdman matched Keyes, driving
in three runs of her own off a pair of
doubles.
It was her arm that caught the
attention of everyone around the

diamond Tuesday, though.


Erdman, taking over for one of
the areas top pitchers over the last
several years in Emma Ray, set the
tone early, striking out the side in
the first inning.
The Regents struggled with one
hit and a walk through three innings.
Erdman and the Wildcats didnt
run into trouble until the fourth
inning after an error and a single.
Verona second baseman Steph Keryluk helped Erdman out of trouble,
though, tagging a runner at second
after Erdman induced a groundball and then throwing over to first
baseman Sara Endres for a double
play.
The first inning was a huge confidence builder for Alyssa and it

was big for me, head coach Todd


Anderson said. Anytime you have
someone taking over for someone
like an Emma Ryan you have concerns.
Unlike in years past though, this
isnt a one pitcher team either as
freshman Emma Kleinsek sat West
down in order in the fifth for the
10-run rule victory.
You dont know what other
teams may have coming into their
program, but from what Ive seen
in practice, I know these girls want
to repeat as conference champions
and I know they have the talent to
deliver, Anderson said.
Verona travels to Florida for three
doubles headers Saturday, Monday

questions, both regarding
the Supreme Court.

VASD
Three candidates are running uncontested for seats
on the board, but the biggest
issue on the ballot for the
district is a referendum to
purchase land.
Voters will decide whether the school board is authorized to borrow $8.35 million in bonds to purchase
three pieces of land. The referendum question also asks
voters to allow the board to
exercise eminent domain on
one of those pieces of land.
Two of the pieces, the
West End property and the
Erbach property off West
Verona Avenue and bordered by the Hwy. 18-151
interchange, likely would
be used together for a new
high school campus if the
referendum were approved,
VASD officials have said.
The third, the Herfel property to the south, is a likely
elementary school site.
Two incumbents, Joanne
Gauthier and Renee Zook,
are running for re-election
to their seats. Former board
president Tom Duerst is running for an open seat that
former board member John
McCulley vacated when he

Duerst to fill the seat for the
rest of McCulleys term.
Duerst told the Press it
was "just time" for him to
return to the board after he
stepped down in 2009. He
had served since 2000.
All three candidates will
run unopposed.

Town of Verona
In the Town of Verona,
both supervisors up for reelection and the town chair
decided not to run again.
Town Sup. Mark Geller,
who has served for three
years on the town board and
four years on the planning
commission, is unopposed to
fill the town chair seat.

Geller added that he has


big shoes to fill in outgoing chair Dave Combs.
Mark Duerst, a former
board member in the early
2000s, will run to join the
board again in the second
supervisor position. Plan
commissioner Laura Dreger
will also run to join the board
in the first supervisor seat.

Other races
In a statewide race for the
Wisconsin Supreme Court,
incumbent justice Ann
Walsh Bradley faces a challenge from Rock County
Circuit Court judge James
P. Daley.
There will also be a Constitutional Amendment on
Election of the Chief Justice. The question ask if a
chief justice of the supreme
court shall be elected for a
two-year term by a majority of the justices then serving on the court?" The chief
justice position is currently
held by the courts longestserving member.
Four Dane County Circuit Court judges are running unopposed in their
respective branches.

Group reporter Scott

No photo ID required at April election


Wisconsin voters will not be required to show a photo ID to vote at the April 7 spring
election.
The U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way last month for enforcement of Wisconsins
2011 voter ID law, but because the spring election is too close, the states attorney
general has advised state election officials not to implement it at the April 7 election.
Absentee ballots had already been sent out by the time the decision was made,
Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel explained in a news release.
The Voter ID law will be in place for future elections this decision is final,
Schimel said.
On March 23, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of an earlier
Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision that had reinstated the photo ID law. The
law had been enjoined by the courts since March 2012.
Voters who are registering now in the municipal clerks office or at the polling place
on Election Day should be aware that they may use their driver license or state ID card
to establish their residence if it contains a current address.
More information on free state ID cards is available at the Wisconsin DMV website:

purchase, Wottreng said.


The 14-member committee, which included teachers, principals, district
office employees and board
members, also decided each
teacher should have both a
laptop and an iPad.
If their students are
using (iPads) they have to
be able to teach with them,
as well, Wottreng said.
The committee discussed
going with laptops for students but decided on iPads
because it allowed them to
provide for two full grades
at the high school, rather
than one.
If we have to stay within
this finite (cost), we just
can't do it all, Wottreng
said. But we feel like we
can make an impact.
She added that grades
9 and 10 having devices
might free up computer lab
time for grades 11 and 12 at
VAHS.
The committee also chose
to go with all iPads to simplify the management of
devices, which can grow
complicated when different operating systems and
devices are spread throughout the district, VAHS
teacher and technology
coordinator Rita Mortenson
told the board.
The next steps would be
creating policies for taking
devices home and considering what the district will
do for the 2016-17 school
year, when the students
with devices move to 11th
grade.
We can make some
good headway, but in a year
well be talking about
the same things, Wottreng
said.
Franke added that professional development to
ensure the devices are used
to their full capacity would
be key and that the ultimate
goal is to improve student
learning.
Wottreng said the purchase would ease the stress
of some teachers who have
expressed a desire to do
certain lessons, but are limited because of the lack of
consistent access to technology.
Our teachers share loud
and clear the frustrations
they have because they
would really like to do projects at that transformative
level, she said. They really have a strong desire to
do that, but its very hard to
do when you have limited
access.
The board is expected to
take a vote on the proposal
at its next meeting, April
20.
