The Luxemburg-Casco School District is working on the design phase on two major projects after they were approved by the public in two referendum questions earlier this month. The combined $27.8 million improvements include a new gym, a new middle school and renovating some classrooms. Superintendent Glenn Schlender explains that the school district purposely did not include a specific design to give the projects as much flexibility as possible.
Schlender says the plan is to begin design of the new gymnasium next month with a hopeful groundbreaking this fall in hopes of having it ready for the 2019-2020 school year. The new middle school construction is targeted for next summer with completion for the 2020-2021 school year.
