With the Sevastopol School District’s new addition enclosed, the vision for the space is beginning to take place. The $25 million project will replace sections of the building close to 100 years old in some cases with something a little bit closer to the 21st century. Students in the agriculture, science, and industrial arts programs will be located in new spaces as well as kids in 4K to fifth grades. Sevastopol School District Administrator Kyle Luedtke says while it was a challenge to connect the new addition to some of the existing structures, it was all done with current educational and operational needs in mind.
The school year will have just ended when work to demolish the 1925 and 1946 sections of the building begins on May 22nd. Luedtke says in addition to the time capsule they recently enclosed, aspects from their history will be saved for the future.
The school building is not the only item on the list Sevastopol School District is looking to improve. The Sevastopol School Board will host a special meeting on Thursday evening to discuss renovating the sports fields before the district’s Property, Buildings and Security Committee takes up the topic on March 30th.
