ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – It’s time now for people in the Rochester Public School District to share their feedback on how to address overcrowding in schools through a survey.
The district’s facilities task force hosted a public meeting Monday to answer questions about that survey.
By now, everyone who lives, works, or has children who attend school in the district should have received the survey through postal mail or email.
The survey asks for opinions on a variety of plans to address overcrowding, such as reconstructing or building new schools, or buying land for future schools.
Each option also includes more details, including how property taxes could increase if a particular plan is enacted.
“It’ll take probably ten to fifteen minutes to actually take the survey by the time you read the background and you become informed about our questions,” said Mark Kuisle, a member of the Facilities Task Force and Century High School’s Activities Director. “And then it’s just a bubble fill-in or if you do the online version it’s just a click of a button so either way it’s relatively painless and quick for them.”
Each paper and email survey has a distinct code, so if more than one person in your household wants to fill it out, you’re asked to contact the district office for more copies.
Completed surveys are due by February 22nd and results will be presented to the school board on March 5.
