Bray Architects and the Slinger School District spent over a year studying building needs and identifying options to better serve the needs of the District and the community. After reviewing a variety of solutions and presenting them to the community in a Fall 2015 survey, the District placed two referendum questions on the February 2016 ballot. The two questions, totaling $42.28 million, were approved by taxpayers and will allow the District to address needs at all five district schools.
A portion of the overall referendum budget will be put towards an addition and renovations at Slinger High School. 70,000 square feet of space will be renovated and includes improvements to the main office, library, lecture room, special education, and fitness.
The renovations also include upgrades to the science, tech education and STEM classrooms. These newly designed spaces will allow the students at Slinger to fully explore STEM/STEAM activities and career paths during the school day.
The project also includes a new 35,890 square foot auditorium that will serve the needs of Slinger High School, District students, as well as the greater community at large. Finally, the high school will also be receiving a new independent concessions building to serve all athletic events and practices.
