Our partnership began with the School District of Milton over 20 years ago, most recently finishing up their $59.9 million district-wide referendum project to address long-term facility needs campus-wide. The April 2019 referendum addressed classroom and common space overcrowding, a failing pool, ADA accessibility, building security and the ability to support modern learning. The project included additions and renovations to nearly every school in the District. Major projects included:
- A new 8+ lane, 25-yard competition pool with seating for 550 at the High School to replace a failing pool.
- A fieldhouse addition at the High School which includes a three court gymnasium, wrestling room, weight room, school store, concessions area and commons space.
- Two-story STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) addition at the High School which almost doubled the amount of technical education space for students and staff. This space also includes a wood shop, a metals lab, breakout spaces, modernized classrooms, band and choir rooms, updated science labs, and a media center with green screen.
- An addition to the Middle School which includes a multipurpose gymnasium, band and choir spaces, four science classrooms and a special education space.
- An addition at East Elementary focused on getting students out of the basement. The addition included additional classrooms, music, art, speech, tutoring, reading and special education areas to address overcrowding. Renovations were also made to the commons area, staff area, kitchen, library and special education classroom.
- An addition at West Elementary included areas for music, art, reading, special education and storage, as well as a renovation to the cafeteria to seat 100 students.
- An addition at Harmony Elementary included five classrooms as well as a renovation to the OT/PT area.
- An addition at Consolidated Elementary included a new vestibule, reception area, principal’s office and health office as well as renovations to a flex space for modern learning.
- Customized reconfigures of each main entrance at all District buildings to ensure they lined up with Act 143 so there is now human interaction before entry into any building.
The goal of the referendum was to help provide safe and quality educational experiences for Milton students.
