    Pewaukee School District Is Growing

    Our district is one of the fastest-growing school districts in Waukesha County in recent years. We are seeing a continuation of a long-term trend in which more and more families with school-aged children are moving into the Pewaukee School District. This is a testament to the educational innovation taking place in our schools and the value seen in our community as a whole.

    Over the past 18 months, the district has engaged in a master planning process to evaluate facility needs in light of the steady enrollment increases we are experiencing.

    The Need

    Over the past eight years, Pewaukee has seen considerable residential growth, making us one of the fastest-growing school districts in Waukesha County. This has increased our enrollment – especially at the elementary level, where we are experiencing the greatest pressure on our capacity.

    We are acting now to meet the District’s needs due to this resident enrollment growth.

    Enrollment trends tell us the Board of Education should act soon to ensure the district continues to provide quality programs and maintain strong financial stewardship.

    We are focused on constantly striving to be the best. 

    Families continue to move to Pewaukee in large part because of our award-winning schools, which are known for their students’ exceptional academic achievement. While this is great news, it also means the district must find new ways to meet the demands of more students attending our schools.

    The Solution

    To accommodate this accelerated growth and alleviate the greatest capacity pressure, the district proposes a solution involving additions at each of its facilities to support a grade reconfiguration moving sixth grade to Asa Clark Middle School and third grade to Horizon Elementary School.

    The Cost

    The District has strategically managed the amount of debt issues through past construction projects to minimize the impact of new debt issuances to meet the needs of the growing student population into the future.
