Commission Provided 40 years of Service to Pleasant Prairie Families
The Pleasant Prairie School Commission began serving the residents of Pleasant Prairie in September of 1969. It was established prior to the creation of a unified school district to help residents address various concerns regarding issues with School Administrators. Upon the creation of a unified district, the Commission took a role as a liaison between the Village and the Board of Education. Over the past several years, the Commission had seen a dramatic drop in the number of residents seeking assistance in communicating with the School Board. This, coupled with the fact that the Commission had no statutory authority granted by the State to perform any specific duties, led to the consideration of dissolving the Commission.
On May 12, members of the School Commission adopted a resolution requesting that the Village Board consider dissolving the Commission. On May 18, the Village Board approved the dissolution. On the same day, members of the School Commission were presented with certificates honoring the time and effort they dedicated to assisting Pleasant Prairie residents with school related concerns. As part of the May 12 resolution, the Commission requested that the Village Board secure resident volunteers to continue conducting candidate forums prior to annual School Board elections. The Village Board wishes to thank each of the members who have invested so much of their time and talent on behalf of the residents of Pleasant Prairie.
