School's design features a lot of glass
VERONA, Wis. — Verona Area School District officials have taken action in regard to parent and teacher concerns about student safety in the new high school, which has a design involving a lot of glass.
Officials with the school district sent a letter to teachers Friday saying the Board of Education had a special meeting Friday morning to discuss concerns and feedback about the design of the new high school.
During the meeting, the board advocated for measures to increase safety and security. In the letter, officials said the board has directed the architects to review the amount, location and type of glass used in the current design.
School district officials later sent a letter to the public addressing student safety and community concerns. In the release, officials said:
“The Board, administration, and design team have heard these concerns and have subsequently directed our architects to review the amount, location, and type of glass used in the building design. These redesign ideas will be vetted through the Visionary Design Team, a team of 15 high school staff members representing each of the various departments, representatives from the high school, as well as district level administration and the Board.”
