Fond du Lac County Communications and Emergency Management is asking everyone to please sign up for a new system available in Fond du Lac County called Smart911.  Smart911 allows individuals to create a Safety Profile for their household at or on the Smart911 App that includes any information they want 9-1-1 and responders to have in the event of an emergency. www.smart911.com
 
When an individual makes a 9-1-1 call, their Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 9-1-1 call taker, allowing them to send the right responders to the right location with the right information. The Smart911 app provides greater access to the lifesaving benefits of Smart911 and targeted location-based alerts to all individuals. The Smart911 App is available on the Apple Store or Google Play. 
 
The information entered is only accessible when 911 is called from a phone number that is tied to a Smart911 profile and is only available to responders for a short time during the call.  The information is maintained in a secure database and the information is not able to be queried, shared, or sold. 
 
For more information or questions, please contact Bobbi Hicken, Director of Communications and Emergency Management for Fond du Lac County 920-929-7647.

At a March 18, 2019 meeting, the School Resource Officer Advisory Committee agreed to continue the existing model of funding: a 50/50 sharing of the costs associated with the employment of five School Resource Officers for twelve months.  Those costs are paid equally by the City of Fond du Lac and the Fond du Lac School District.

This communication is a follow-up to the February 25, 2019 Weather Make-Up Plan information. Since the last communication, we have had an additional inclement weather day. Due to significant flooding in the community, the Fond du Lac School District was closed on Friday, March 15, 2019. 

Since the District added additional minutes to the calendar by going to school on March 22 and having a full day of school on May 3, we currently meet the state required instructional minutes.  As a result, the District will not be adding a day/instructional minutes to the calendar at this time to make-up for last Friday, March 15.  Below is the calendar of days/additional minutes that have previously been added to the school calendar:

Friday, March 22:  Full day of school for students

Friday, May 3:  Full day of school for students

Friday, May 24:  Full day of school for students

Wednesday, June 5:  Full day of school for students

Thursday, June 6:  Half day of school for students

Information regarding Hours of Instruction-Administrative Rule can be found at the following address:  https://dpi.wi.gov/cal/days-hours

Should you have any questions, please contact your school principal or Director of Human Resources, Sharon Simon.  Ms. Simon coordinates the District Calendar Committee and can be reached at 906-6501.

The District Calendar Committee has historically built in two weather make up days. This year those days are Friday, May 24, and Friday, June 7.  The January 23 and January 28 snow days will be made up as follows:


Friday, May 24:  Full day of school for students

Wednesday, June 5:  Full day of school for students

Thursday, June 6:  Half day of school for students


To address the weather-related school closings on January 30 and January 31, the District will use the state provision regarding instructional minutes. Through the 2013 Wisconsin Act 257, the state legislature eliminated the requirement of 180 days of student contact. School Districts remain responsible to meet the necessary hours requirement outlined in the Wisconsin State Statutes.  As a result, the District is no longer bound to making up every inclement weather day if the required hours can be met.


Since the District has enough instructional hours built into the schedule at every level, students and staff will not make up the January 30 and January 31 weather days.  We are hopeful that these will be the only days that the District is closed. If we encounter additional school closing days, the District’s plan is to use existing instructional minutes or add instructional minutes to the current school calendar to meet the state requirement.  By having a full day of school on February 1, we gained back instructional minutes that may be helpful in the future if we have delayed starts, early dismissals, or additional school closings.


Information regarding Hours of Instruction-Administrative Rule can be found at the following address:  https://dpi.wi.gov/cal/days-hours


Should you have any questions, please contact your school principal or Director of Human Resources, Sharon Simon.  Ms. Simon coordinates the District Calendar Commitee and can be reached at 906-6501.

After a December 17 Special Meeting of Board of Education Vote, the Fond du Lac School District will be placing two referendum questions, totaling $98.5 million, on the April 2, 2019 ballot. The purpose of the questions will be to address various needs at the schools related to three main focal areas: improving safety and security; upgrading building exterior by replacing roofs, windows and doors; and updating building systems related to heating ventilation and air conditioning, electrical and plumbing.


In the fall, a community survey was conducted, indicating that a majority of Fond du Lac’s residents would support a referendum in the $90 million range. Using that figure, Board members reviewed information provided by the architects and contractors related to the scope of need within our buildings. Upon review, Board members and school district administrators prioritized areas with the greatest need to arrive at $91.5 million for question one. 


Question two will ask the community to consider air conditioning for the eight buildings that currently do not have it. This question will ask the public for $7 million dollars, which would allow every school to provide the same climate-controlled environment for students and staff. Hence, a total of $98.5 million will be requested from the community.


The District will be mailing additional information to all district residents in the coming months. Please watch your mailbox and the district website for further details. Should you have questions, please call 920-906-6502 or email referendum2019@fonddulac.k12.wi.us.
