An Update From Fremont City Schools Superintendent Mr. Jon Detwiler

Thanks to the generosity of the citizens of this community, we are deep into the construction of four new elementary schools and a new high school. Due to the warm weather during December and early January, most of the site work is completed at the elementary schools. The underground water retention systems are in place and those eliminate the safety concern of above ground retention ponds. Our construction manager will soon be able to go out for bid on the elementary schools, which are scheduled to be complete in the fall of 2020. The Board of Education has chosen to keep the names on the existing sites as they are: Atkinson, Croghan, Lutz and Otis. The image below is a rendering of what has been designed so far for the four schools. The floor plan for each school is the same, which has saved us a lot of design cost. The colors and final details are not yet decided, but this is what we have so far. We have met with the City’s first responders several times along the way to maximize the safety of each building.

The Board purchased the empty American Legion building at a Sheriff’s sale for the future use of our Maintenance and Technology Departments. Our Transportation Center will be moving to West State Street to allow for the building of the new high school. The new Ross High is one year behind and will be completed for the fall of 2021. Early site work there should begin in June after school is out. That building will basically sit where the current large parking lot and athletic track are located.

The future of our school system is bright indeed. The completion of this project will mean that our new middle school will be the oldest at nine years old, giving us the most up-to-date buildings in the area. It is a good time to be a Little Giant.

Jon C. Detwiler, Superintendent
