2017 Day at the Capitol
On March 15, school board members and school administrators from around the State attended the 2017 Day at the Capitol. The annual event provides an opportunity for school leaders to meet with legislators about current issues and challenges facing their schools. Attending on behalf of Marshall Public Schools were Jon Bunch, School Board President; Barb Sramek, District Administrator; and Bob Chady, Business Manager. They met with State Representative, Joel Kleefisch, to advocate for the increase in per-pupil aide proposed in the next biennial state budget. They also voiced their support for returning local control to school districts in determining their school year start date. Currently, public schools in Wisconsin are prohibited from starting the school year before September 1. Representative Kleefisch committed to support both issues Marshall advocated for.
