Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District

Middleton & Cross Plains, WI

Findorff has had a strong relationship with the Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District for nearly 20 years. This work has included master planning, studies, design, community outreach, referendum planning, and construction. We have completed everything from small renovations and summer work, to extensive new buildings and complex environments. Below are several of Findorff’s recent projects:

This $60 million referendum passed with 68% support after a 4+ year planning and community engagement campaign. The referendum resolved overcrowding at all of the District’s elementary and middle schools by changing from a PreK-5 / 6-8 grade configuration to a PreK-4 / 5-8 arrangement.

The most significant component of the referendum is a $50 million “new” 5-8 grade middle school. The project saved 25,000 square feet of the existing Kromrey Middle School and added 240,000 square feet in multiple phases. The building form closely follows the regional planning commission’s boundary for the Pheasant Branch Conservancy. The three-story, 6-8 grade wing of the building features an environmental education center to use by students and the community. It has direct access to the Conservancy for research, study, and restoration.
