Kewaunee School District’s new facility upgrades have drawn attention from other area schools on what to do for their own building upgrades. The district is just months removed from completing its two phase, $15.2 million overhaul of everything from classroom and system upgrades to the construction of new athletics and agriculture facilities. Now, school officials from areas like Wittenberg-Birnamwood and Sevastopol have planned visits to Kewaunee to learn how to approach the journey the district started even before the improvements went to referendum in 2015. Kewaunee Superintendent Karen Treml says she is happy to share with others how much the staff and students are enjoying their new learning spaces.
Treml says the feedback from students, parents, and community members on the improvements continue to be extremely high, especially in their new gym and improved auditorium as more events are scheduled.
