Milton High School Receives WICPA Educational Foundation Grant Award

Milton High School is pleased to report that it has received a grant from the Wisconsin Certified Public Accountant (WICPA) Educational Foundation to support the educational programming of its accounting students.  The WICPA grant award is for $2,150 dollars, and is being used to support the curriculum and some unique, interactive learning experiences for accounting students at Milton High School. This year’s grant award was used to support the annual “Reality Check”, which is an interactive financial literacy learning day with our local businesses, and a field trip to the Federal Reserve Bank in Chicago, where students will get to meet with and learn from current professionals serving as financial advisors and accountants about the various careers that exist in accounting.

Milton High School’s School to Work Coordinator and grant award recipient Amy Kenyon expressed her appreciation for the WICPA Educational Foundation grant by stating, "We are very grateful to the WICPA for their generosity in awarding this grant, as it is a great tool to help students identify the many career paths that a degree in Accounting can provide."


Milton High School Principal Jeremy Bilhorn also commented on the grant award by stating, "WICPA's grant award is yet another example of our MHS staff working hard to search out and obtain extra financial resources that will provide for meaningful learning opportunities for our students.  I am grateful to both the WICPA and our staff, who together, help to provide for some of the exceptional learning experiences that our Milton High School students get to enjoy.

School Board Approves Proposal To Improve District Security Systems


The School District of Milton’s Board of Education approved upgrades to the District’s security camera system and access control system at their meeting on Monday, March 9, 2015.  The Board’s Finance Committee gave approval to staff to research necessary improvements to the District’s 10-year-old security camera system and aging door access control in the fall of 2014.  At their March 4th meeting, the Finance Committee authorized staff to present the full Board with a recommendation for these improvements at their next regularly scheduled School Board meeting on March 9th.


The approved proposal includes placing new internal and external security cameras in all of the District’s eight (8) schools and Schilberg Park.  The access control systems throughout the District will be upgraded as well.  The total cost for this project is $430,858.  Funding for the project will come from unspent 2014-15 expenditures budgets and/or a one-time use of fund balance.  The improvements to the security camera and access control systems will be completed by June 30, 2015.


The funding for this project is completely separate from the development of the 2015-16 school year District budget.  Based on the Governor’s current state budget proposal, which reduces K-12 funding and is currently being discussed in the state legislature, the District could face up to a 1.4 million dollar budget deficit as it begins to prepare its 2015-16 school year budget.


District Administrator Tim Schigur commented on the security system improvement proposal by stating, “The safety and security of our students and staff is of the utmost importance to me, our Board of Education, and to our parents.  We have financially prepared and planned for these necessary security system improvements throughout the District, using existing financial resources available to us.“
