BACK TO SCHOOL: Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District moves forward with building projects

MIDDLETON (WKOW) — You’ll see a new face leading the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District this year.

Dr. Dana Monogue previously worked in the Milwaukee area, serving in the Waukesha School System and the Elmbrook School System. She moved to the Madison area in July to become the superintendent of the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District.

“We’re focused on teaching and learning,” she said. “Making sure that all of the students we serve feel really welcomed and valued in our schools and that regardless of race or ethnicity or gender that everyone is thriving.”

Thursday on Wake Up Wisconsin, Monogue talked about the timeline for several building projects. They were made possible by a referendum passed in the fall of 2018, asking voters to borrow $139 million to build a new elementary school and expand the high school.

She said the new Pope Farm Elementary is set to come online next fall. They are ahead of schedule.

The highschool project won’t get underway until April. Officials are in the design phase. It is scheduled to be finished in the fall of 2022. Capacity at that school will be raised from 2,300 to 3,000.
