The Verona Area School District has served generations of
students since our first school was built in 1918. Since that
time, our community has experienced significant growth and
development. The District has grown by over 600 resident
students since our last school opened in 2006. As we prepare
to educate a projected 1,529 additional students
by 2030, we are focused on a comprehensive K-12
facilities plan that:
Manages current crowding and projected growth
Provides safe, accessible, and flexible educational spaces
Addresses maintenance needs to keep buildings operating efficiently
Offers a long-term solution for students, staff, and community
Reflects the input and priorities of our community
For nearly a decade, the Board of Education has been evaluating district growth. Now, after two years of intensive study, planning and input from our community, the Board has authorized an April 2017 referendum that presents to voters a comprehensive K-12 facilities plan addressing the District’s current needs, projected growth and educational goals.
Residents will have the opportunity to vote on two related facilities questions and one operational question. Click here to review the three ballot questions.
Decade of Studies/Projections
2015 Land Referendum
Leading up to the April 4, 2017 Referendum, there are various pieces of data that have assisted the board in preparing for this growth (see Facilities Planning Background for additional information):
• Community Growth & Projections Study
• School Enrollment Projections
• Facilities & Capacity Study
Due to the growth projections listed above, Fitchburg and Verona residents were asked in April, 2015 to vote on acquiring appropriate, available land for future schools. Click here for details on the land referendum.
