STEM Institute Being Expanded For High School Component

The Fond du Lac School Board approves changes to its charter school contract with the STEM Institute Governance Board that will allow the addition of a high school component at the institute. District Superintendent Jim Sebert says next year they will add Grade 9 and will have all high school grades included over the next four years. He says the high school classes added to the institute will also be located in the old Franklin School where the Academy and Institute are both currently housed. He says currently they have about 180 students in the school and will have a little over 200 once the high school components are completed. He says there ultimate goal is to have 210 kids in the entire 3-12 grade school.
