Roland-Story school officials are asking community members to take a survey about the athletic stadium in an effort to help the district decide priorities about a potential project.

The Roland-Story Community School District is inviting residents to take a community-wide survey as the school board works to prioritize improvements coming to Dallas Kray Track and Kerry Van Winkle Field and the surrounding athletic complex facilities.

Through the survey, the district and board are asking community members to review the stadium’s most pressing needs and assess which of the potential project elements they consider to be most important.

Information from the survey will be used by district leaders and the board to evaluate solutions that meet district needs, are financially responsible and move the community forward.

“As a board, we are excited to present all the possible improvements coming to our athletic stadium,” said Marc Soderstrum, school board president. “We will be pursuing a general obligation bond to make these improvements. Through this survey, we are asking our community to review all the needs at the facility and help us determine which items we should prioritize as we move forward.”

Individual responses will remain confidential and the survey will be open until April 12. It takes about five to 10 minutes to complete. To take the survey online, visit

Community members who prefer to fill out a paper version can pick one up at the district office, 1009 Story St. in Story City, or middle school office, 206 South Main St. in Roland.
