Rightsizing Project Overview

Marinette School District's $30.9 million referendum proposal was passed by voters during the November 3, 2020 election. The plan will rightsize the district by consolidating operations from six buildings to four, allowing the district to operate more efficiently and continue to offer an excellent educational program. The plan calls for building additions at Merryman and Park Elementary Schools, and capital improvements at Marinette Middle and High Schools.

Transitioning to 4 Schools

Beginning Fall 2022, the District will operate four schools including: 

  • Marinette Primary School (for all students in Early Childhood, 4K, 5K and 1st grade)
  • Marinette Intermediate School (for all students in grades 2-4)
  • Marinette Middle School (for all students in grades 5-8, as is currently)
  • Marinette High School (for all students in grades 9-12, as is currently)
The District will continue to communicate transition information to families in our district. 

Rightsizing Project Updates & Information

Rightsizing Progress Updates

The District and consultants from Somerville Architects and Engineers and CD Smith Construction have been working diligently to bring the Rightsizing vision to reality. As the project continues to move forward, projects continue to be on target with projected timelines and costs are in alignment with the budget.

In an effort to support district-wide consistency and school spirit, the two elementary schools will be renamed. Effective for the 2022-23 school year, the Merryman Elementary building will serve all students in early childhood through first grade and be renamed Marinette Primary School. The Park Elementary building will serve all students in second through fourth grade and be renamed Marinette Intermediate School.

At both elementary school buildings, a large section of the exterior walls have been installed, with interior walls and hallways beginning to be established and taking shape. The recent warm Fall weather has allowed construction crews to continue to make great progress in building the rooms, hallways, and common spaces that students will enjoy in Fall of 2022. In November 2021, crews will be working to install bar joists and metal decking for the roofs at each building.
