FDL School District Continues Working Toward Start of Referendum Projects

The Fond du Lac School District continues to work through the
initial steps before construction begins on $98.5 million in improvements to
district schools that passed in the April election. Superintendent Jim Sebert
says School Board members have been holding regular meetings with Bray Architects
and C.D. Smith Construction, and recently began walking tours to look at schools
that are on the list for improvements firsthand. “We’ve got those plans that
were approved by the public – and we costed the square footage and all of that
stuff, and now it’s a matter of getting inside and saying, by room – ‘are we
replacing that door?’, ‘are we replacing those fixtures?’ – and really getting
specific in terms of how we’re going to move forward,” Sebert said. District
officials toured Waters and Pier Elementary Schools last week and will tour Theisen
Middle School and Chegwin Elementary School in two weeks. The first phase of
construction begins in May of 2020.
