Town hall meeting results: Appetite for restructure at USD 353 is a pretty unpopular idea

by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Declining enrollment, uneven classroom sizes, and a proposal for mandated preschool has left the Wellington school district leaders with the task of studying changing the structure of the USD 353 school district. 

Judging from the reaction of the audience the message appears to be clear:

Don’t change a (insert your favorite profanity here) thing! 

Wellington held a town hall meeting at the WHS auditorium yesterday evening, that included around 100 parents, teachers, and curious taxpayers. The meeting lasted for over two hours, and in the end, nothing was solved, or one would argue the needle was even remotely moved. 

At the end of the meeting, those in attendance were asked to do a computer survey using their cell phones. Using data, the audience members were asked three questions: 

•Which options do you feel fit our district the best? 

It was overwhelming that moving boundaries and attendance centers were not a popular option with 85 percent having other ideas/thoughts. 

•Do you feel a preschool center or a fifth-grade center would fit our district?
