Kenmare School Addition Vote Planned

Posted: Updated:

Voters in other area school districts are going to the polls next month to decide on expansion plans.

In Kenmare, residents will be asked to vote on a major addition to the school.

After sifting through four different options, the Kenmare School Board chose Option 2 for people in the community to vote on.

The 14-million dollar project would add a new gym and several classrooms.

Currently, enrollment is split between the main school building which holds grades 3-12 and an additional school for grades kindergarten through 2nd grade.

The new addition would allow for students in all grades to be under one roof--a change that Superintendent Duane Mueller says holds advantages for the school district.

(Duane Mueller, Kenmare Public School Superintendent)"Just the environment for students to learn, the environment for teachers to work in. We all know that in the studies of education today, we talk about air quality, we talk about lighting, we talk about all of these different things...proper climate controls, those type of aspects to enhance the learning environment for students."

The community has to grant its approval of the project before it becomes a reality.

Mueller says if passed, district residents would see an extra $267 dollars in property taxes on a 100-thousand dollar house.

Mueller says the school board weighed the options for over two years before deciding on this one.

(Duane Mueller, Kenmare Public School Superintendent)"With everything that came from our architects and so forth the board decided two weeks ago that bring everybody at this site if the vote is positive and people get out and vote and say we can do this."

The vote takes place on November 19th from 8 am to 7pm at Kenmare School.

You can learn more about the project at the school's website.
