The Luxemburg-Casco School District is organizing core teams to work on the design phase for the new gymnasium and middle school that will be built in the next few years. After the two referendum questions passed last month, the school district has been forming a “pyramid-like” organizational structure with planning groups for each school. L-C School Superintendent Glenn Schlender says there will also be a planning group for the new gym, fitness center and wrestling area.
Schlender says at the base of the planning will be “user groups” with staff members, including Physical Education teachers and coaches. After a summer of discussions, recommendations will move to the core team including administrators who then will finalize everything with the school board. The Luxemburg-Casco School District is working with Nexus Solutions, a consulting company, to help organize a way for the community to give input in the process as well. Plans are to have the construction of the new gymnasium begin sometime later this fall, according to Schlender.
