Safe Schools, Strong Schools Bond Proposal
Dear Chippewa Valley Schools Parents and Guardians,
This has been a good week for Chippewa Valley Schools. The positive outcome of the bond election is important to our students, staff, and community. Our theme of “Safe Schools, Strong Schools” resonated with our entire community. With this bond, we will not only be able to make our schools safer and tackle much-needed infrastructure improvements, but we can also equip our schools with the technology necessary to prepare our students for the jobs of tomorrow.
This bond was successful because of the efforts of many. I saw parents posting on social media and observed many lawn signs dotting our neighborhoods. Thank you for those expressions of support, we noticed and appreciated them.
Our community has always been supportive of its school district. There is a collective commitment on behalf of all stakeholders to provide our students with a safe, supportive environment conducive to learning. People care deeply about Chippewa Valley because we care deeply about our students, staff, and families.
It is this, above all else, that makes me thankful for the opportunity to be the superintendent of such a great school community. On behalf of our 16,000 students, our 2,000 employees, and the Chippewa Valley Board of Education, please accept our sincerest thanks for your support.
Chippewa Valley Schools
Keeping our students safe has never been more important.
The Safe Schools, Strong Schools proposal would fund necessary security improvements to ensure Chippewa Valley Schools students are safe before, during and after school. This $97 million dollar proposal would fund security equipment and enhancements at existing buildings and facilities that would help keep Chippewa Valley Schools safe.
Key areas of improvement include:
- Security improvements
- Replacing the oldest buses in the fleet
- Building mechanical, plumbing and other repairs to keep students safe, warm and dry
- New instructional technology to prepare students for jobs

The Safe Schools, Strong Schools proposal would also provide state-of-the-art instructional technology and increased access to Career and Technical Education programs and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) instruction, giving students real life, on-the-job experience and a head start on careers.
