School Board Approves Plan to Address District Facilities Needs

December 18, 2020

At its meeting on Thursday, December 17, the WSR School Board voted 5-0 to approve a motion to address the district’s facilities needs. 


The approved plan is one of the options presented by the WSR Facilities Task Force. It would include renovating Shell Rock Elementary, updating the high school, and building two new elementary schools in Waverly. The project would require voter approval through a bond issue question.


The plan would maintain a district presence in Shell Rock while improving efficiency and accommodating for future growth.


Next, the board will determine when to place a bond issue on the ballot for the community’s consideration. The next possible date for a vote is March 2. 


Before that, the board plans to focus on land acquisition in an effort to identify where two new elementary schools could be built in Waverly.
