Wega-Fremont unveils school renderings
Public asked to review design proposals
Pictorial rendering images for Weyauwega-Fremont High School and Fremont Elementary will be available for public review on two consecutive nights.
Meetings will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 24, in the high school auditorium and at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 25, in the Fremont Elementary Library.
The public is invited to attend and see the renderings which address deficiencies in both schools.
During this month’s Committee of the Whole meeting, the W-F School Board reviewed and supported sharing these images with community stakeholders.
It was in the spring of 2014 that the board began a process to better understand the current conditions of district facilities.
Outcomes from the recent facility study and educational analysis identified several areas for targeted improvements.
Notable findings addressed the aging heating and cooling system at both Weyauwega Elementary and W-F High School.
In an effort to better understand the facility study findings, the board recommended a community engagement process to reflect on the recent study results.
Outcomes from the community engagement study were then communicated with the board for its consideration.
At its January meeting, the board approved project work to address the inefficient Weyauwega Elementary heating and cooling system.
System upgrades will be completed over the summer and early next fall.
With known heating and cooling deficiencies identified in the high school, the board initiated a process to further examine potential space improvements to targeted areas within the high school and to Fremont Elementary.
Specific building areas identified for improvements are career and technical education classrooms, including family consumer education, technical education, agri-science education and science education (lab spaces).
Additional high school areas recognized as deficient with space limitations include the auditorium, weight room, storage, common student gathering spaces and school entrances.
The board recently authorized ATS&R Planners/Architects/Engineers to develop conceptual pictorial renderings to address targeted space deficiencies within the high school and Fremont Elementary.
