After two unsuccessful bond referendums, Okoboji Schools hired FEH’s referendum specialist team to assist. We started with a clean slate by gathering public input through our interactive Spark Session process. Ultimately, this bond referendum was successful as it was sold on the needs of the district and the community with the community having full input on the decision process.
The district’s primary need was to replace their land-locked, crowded middle school in a location that would better serve the students. The new facility features a welcoming entry that also affords a clear view to administration for security purposes, central commons (which includes locker bays), media center, gymnasium, serving kitchen, offices, storage spaces, and classroom wings. The classroom wings include music, art, science, SPED, general classrooms, and collaboration spaces.
