(Beaver Dam) Beaver Dam Superintendent Mark DiStefano says 2019-2020 will be the first “clean” year at the high school after dealing with referendum construction for over a year-and-a-half. The work stemmed from a $49-million-dollar referendum approved by voters in the fall of 2016.
DiStefano says he is looking forward to beginning a new school year without having to work through the unique challenges brought on by the construction. He adds that he is also excited about the new possibilities the updated facility can bring by hosting new and unique events that bring more people in to celebrate the investment the community made for the high school.
DiStefano says a lot of great work went into modernizing the building but with its structure being over 60-years-old it is important to stay on top of any issues that could arise.
DiStefano says they have received tremendous feedback following large scale events held in the gymnasium as well as from alumni during reunion tours. He says the district is confident that the facility will serve the community well for several decades.
