Prairie Middle School
An estimated $13.2 million out of the $147 million referendum will be spent at Prairie Middle School, which includes all construction costs and non-construction items such as safety and security, furniture and technology. Beyond general repairs and maintenance, as well as safety and security upgrades, the major project at Prairie was the construction of a new classroom addition, which replaced the former mobile classrooms. Construction at Prairie began in Summer 2021 and was completed on time and within budget for the start of the 2022-23 school year.

Students work collaboratively in groups in the new addition (Fall 2022). The new addition provides students with the opportunity to choose from various work spaces.. In the photo, one group works at a high table, while another group works on the floor.
Classrooms in the new addition have a clear garage door, which the teachers can open during a lesson to break down traditional classroom barriers and broaden options for collaborative or independent learning spaces.
