Will the new high school have a pool to support the swimming and diving team? If not, where will the new high school team plan to hold swim practice since the current high school uses the Waukee YMCA pool?

No, the second high school will not have a pool. The district will continue to explore options with our community partners for additional time and space to support the swimming program.

Is the district planning to provide more parking than we have at the current high school?

Yes. The schematic layout of the facility, coupled with shared space with the City of Waukee will allow for adequate parking.

Will there be a feeder system established for the two high schools?

A plan for the physical transition of students to new buildings will be developed during the district’s Boundary Committee work. This work will start during the 2017-18 school year. A recommendation will go to Board of Education in December of 2018.
