Background: At its August 30, 2018 meeting, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors referred Resolution 1819R-007 by Director Sain to the Committee on Student Achievement and School Innovation.

The Administration is in agreement with the resolution, and sees great value in establishing a steering committee to guide the redesign of Webster Secondary School. The steering committee will include representation from Webster's leadership, staff, students, parents and partners, as well as MPS central services and the community. The opportunity to participate will be shared with stakeholders using various methods including during the October Parent Teacher Conferences. Allowing an additional month to provide the first report to the Board will be helpful in establishing the steering committee with individuals invested in the vision set forth in the resolution. Once the steering committee has been established, the work will begin on the redesign and growth of Webster Secondary School.
Fiscal Impact Statement: The approximate cost in 2018-19 to support the ninth grade expansion at Daniel Webster Secondary School for the 2019-2020 school year is $175,000.

Future year fiscal impact will depend on the direction of the redesign and growth of Webster Secondary School as determined through input of the committee with approval of the Board.
Implementation and Assessment Plan Upon approval by the Board, the Administration will establish the steering committee to work on the redesign and growth of Webster Secondary School.
Recommendation: The Administration recommends that the Board adopt Resolution 1819R-007 by Director Sain regarding the reconfiguration of Webster Middle School as amended.
