None of the new or renovated school buildings is designed yet. So the school district is launching a design phase for the new high school and the five new or renovated elementary schools. The design phase will involve any and all community members, staff members and students who wish to participate.
Over the course of the next 12 to 15 months, the design phase will involve: community-wide meetings beginning in December, a "green team" of community volunteers with an interest in exploring environmental best practices for the new or renovated buildings, and neighbor committees of residents living in the closest proximity to the buildings. Community members can look for more information soon!
Additionally, to prepare for construction at the high school, residents will also see work beginning on the athletic fields on the district-owned land behind Tremont Elementary School in the spring of 2018. The turf field and baseball/softball diamonds are tentatively expected to be completed by the fall of 2018.
After the design phase concludes, community members can expect construction to follow this tentative timeline:
- Early 2019: Construction begins at the high school, Greensview, Wickliffe, Barrington and Tremont.
- Fall of 2020: Greensview, Wickliffe, Barrington and Tremont would open to students. Windermere students would be housed for the 2020-2021 school year in the old Wickliffe building.
- Fall of 2021: The new Windermere and high school would open to students.
- Fall of 2022: The new high school site would be completed, with the old building demolished and the space developed into athletic field space.
