Submitted to OnFocus – Auburndale, WI – On November 3rd 2020, voters in the School District of Auburndale supported a comprehensive referendum plan that allowed the District to borrow $6,900,000 to fund district-wide infrastructure improvements and renovate and expand the agricultural, technology, and family & consumer science education (FACE) spaces. As well as an operational referendum question that allows the District to exceed the revenue limit by $200,000 annually to invest in maintaining quality staff and improving technology.
The District spent the last six months working with their partners, Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA) and Miron Construction to plan for the new and renovated spaces approved by taxpayers. The District is hosting a Groundbreaking celebration to memorialize the occasion. The event is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, June 2 at 2 p.m.
The event is planned to take place in the southeast parking lot, across from the Tech Ed instruction area. District residents are invited to join in-person or virtually. The virtual link is on the District’s website and social media. District administration, staff, students as well as representatives from Eppstein Uhen Architects and Miron Construction Co. Inc. will be on hand as the first shovel of dirt is overturned.
“We are thankful for our community’s investment in our schools. As I reflect on this past year, I am stunned by the amazing things we’ve been able to accomplish despite the obstacles set forth. We are excited to break ground on this project as the students head into summer,” said Jamie Delikowski, District Administrator. “When they return for the new school year, they will be able to see some of the improvements. This gives everyone something to look forward to.”
