Sauk Prairie School District

Prairie du Sac, WI

Facing increasing enrollment and the need to transform its facilities to meet 21st century learning needs, the Sauk Prairie School District selected PRA to perform a district-wide facilities study. The study process involved assessing all District facilities and proposing options for their future. The District chose to pursue a $35M referendum, using PRA’s recommendations and identified building deficiencies as driving factors. PRA provided the District with graphics, including colored floor plans of the proposed building options, throughout the pre-referendum process and attended numerous community engagement sessions to answer questions regarding facility needs.

The $35M referendum passed on April 1st, 2014, and PRA provided architectural and interior design services to the District for projects resulting from the referendum. Projects include:

  • A new 101,000 sq. ft., 550-student Bridges Elementary School
  • A 47,525 sq. ft., 250-student, 4K-5th grade addition to Tower Rock Elementary School
  • Modernizing science labs at Middle and High Schools
  • Implementing safety enhancements throughout District
  • Mechanical upgrades to maximize safety and efficiency
  • Updating facilities to meet ADA requirements
