Sevastopol community members and school officials will continue to meet through June to determine the future of the buildings and physical plant at Sevastopol School. The current facility is a mishmash of buildings constructed and pieced together over decades ever since the first building was erected in 1924. The Advisory Committee has collected and considered a large amount of information over the first four meetings and plans on digesting a good deal more over the next ten scheduled for 2018. District Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says the level of commitment and involvement from the community is inspiring.
Members of the Bray Architectural firm have been providing technical assistance and presented a continuum of options for consideration. The low-end option would not alter the footprint and merely focus on infrastructure upgrades. The other three options involve varying degrees of renovation and new construction with the most ambitious being a new two-story all grades building located elsewhere on district property. Luedtke has suggested that the planning process include a future population study to ensure that whatever is decided will satisfy student needs in the future.
