Contact Cathy Olig, our Executive Director, to attend a few of our monthly meetings and learn more about the SWSA first hand.

If your school district is ready to join the SWSA, the Executive Director will connect you with the South Milwaukee School District (SWSA’s fiscal agent) and you will be provided a packet of information along with the SWSA budget and fee structure.

  • The Board of Education will be required to sign an intergovernmental agreement (pursuant to Section 66.0301 of the Wisconsin Statutes).
  • The school district will be required to submit a one-time payment for the annual fee.
