The School District of Rhinelander invites interested citizens to tour the area at Rhinelander High School being proposed as the “Early Learning Center” for SDR’s Four-Year-Old Kindergarten (4K) and Early Childhood (EC) programs on Monday, June 4, at 4:30 p.m., at Entrance #13 (Administration Center entrance at back of building) will be open to welcome attendees.
Dave Wall, Assistant Superintendent-Pupil Services, Crescent Elementary Principal Teri Maney, and other staff members will be on hand to provide a tour and share the vision of the proposal to move 4K and EC programs to a segregated section at RHS.
“As we continue to explore budget savings measures, this idea is being revisited. The proposed savings is approximately $80,000 per year. Equally important is the opportunity that moving 4K and Early Childhood programs to RHS will offer to our high school students… students helping students is a win-win proposition. As we continue to seek hands-on opportunities for our students exploring career options, this will provide students in our Family and Consumer Sciences program a stimulating program, offering real-world experiences,” said Wall.
Proposed construction to RHS to accommodate the 4K and EC programs includes installing a secure vestibule to the high school, a playground, and the remodel of 3,200 square feet of classroom space. The board’s Operations and Strategic Planning Committee will discuss this proposed change during their 6:15 p.m. meeting on this same evening.
Everyone is invited to tour the proposed area. Please use Entrance #13, which is marked as the Administration Center. Ample parking is available near Entrance #13.
