Career Construction Academy

The Fond du Lac School Board continues workshop discussions about the Career Construction Academy that would be located behind the Fond du Lac High School. The board has already pledged $500,000 of the estimated project costs, but District Superintendent Jim Sebert says those costs would be more if not for the donations they’ve already been pledged toward construction of the facility. He estimates it would have cost over $1.5 million if not for those in-kind and labor donations. Sebert says it has already had a positive impact on the enrollment for the building trades program. Enrollment for the program has more than doubled because of the anticipation over what the Career Construction Academy will offer the program. More than $850,000 has been raised for the facility. Sebert says they already have a good program, but the new facility would be a great place for them to house it in.
