At its October 21st Board Meeting, the Cochrane-Fountain City School Board honored the Town of Milton with a Wisconsin Association of School Board’s 2020 Business Honor Roll Award. The honor roll program recognizes local school district business partners that support their local schools by providing resources or additional learning opportunities for students and staff. The school board provided the following information in support of its request to have the Town of Milton receive the award:
“The Town of Milton, through grants and a partnership with Cochrane Co-Op Telephone, has played an essential role in bringing broadband internet access not only to the C-FC schools but to the families within the township. Free public wi-fi is available in the parking lot of the Town of Milton Town Hall. The Wisconsin Routes to Recovery Grant provided federal funding to every Wisconsin town, village, city, county or recognized Indian tribe to use on COVID-related expenses. The Town of Milton Board voted to use their remaining funds to purchase disposable food distribution products (to-go containers, plasticware, etc.) for C-FC’s Food Service Program. This purchase should provide the supplies needed to package food for C-FC’s food service program for the entire year.”
