Luxemburg-Casco School District is continuing discussions on what to do with its current middle school building, including the creation of an alternative high school. The district has been talking with various stakeholders since February to move middle school students to the main campus in Luxemburg and repurposing the Casco building into something new. Superintendent Glenn Schlender says the alternative high school could be one idea to keep the promise to Casco residents of keeping a school presence in the village while helping students struggling to learn in a traditional setting.
With the idea still in its infancy, Schlender says the alternative high school concept could become a good outlet for Kewaunee and Algoma School Districts, similar to its partnership with the Ahnapee Regional Technical Academy.
