Building for 2020 - Building for a new kind of learning...

Following the community’s approval of the April 2017 referenda, the design process began for the new Verona Area High School. Once the high school design is complete, a team will be established to support the renovation projects planned for the existing middle and high schools.

The first phase of design is known as Schematic Design (SD), and is a highly collaborative process between VASD staff and the team of designers from Eppstein Uhen Architects (EUA). Schematic Design includes extensive exploration of design options, establishing Guiding Principles, and developing interior and exterior drawings, floor plans and site layout. Visual illustrations of the new Verona Area High School campus will be complete in early fall 2017. The next phase of the design process, Design Development and Construction Documentation, will be complete in spring 2018. Please see the Design and Construction Schedule linked below.

A Visionary Design Team (VDT) has been established to support the SD phase of design work. The team consists of 15 high school volunteer staff representing all departments, to include arts, athletics and special education. Administrators from the high school and central office also serve on the VDT and are led by the design team from EUA. This team will meet over the summer providing input for design and serving as a liaison to bring information and collect feedback from the high school staff.

To keep all community members informed and engaged in the work, the District will host a presentation on July 18 and 20. A fall community workshop is also planned for October. To learn more about upcoming events, visit the Community Events page linked at the left.

To follow along with the work of the Visioning Design team, please view the presentations and related resources provided for each VDT meeting below
