09/21/2020- The Marinette School District has selected C.D. Smith Construction as their Construction Manager for a $30.9 million facility plan going to voters in a referendum election November 3rd. The selection was announced during last week’s Board of Education meeting. If the referendum is passed by the voters, C.D. Smith will lead the construction planning, budgeting, and feasibility assessment efforts for the district’s rightsizing project. Under the proposal, district operations would be consolidated into four buildings from the current six. Specifically, the district would expand Merryman and Park Elementary Schools and close Garfield Elementary School and Sunrise Early Learning Center. Merryman would serve children in early childhood through first grade while Park would serve children in second through fourth grades. The proposal also includes remodeling and renovations at Merryman and Park as well as at Marinette Middle and High Schools.
