Alternative High School to Move to College

Sheridan County School District 2 is still working on plans to build a new collaborative high school on the Sheridan College campus.

But in the meantime, the John C. Schiffer Collaborative School will start classes in the fall in classrooms that will be leased from the college. Scott Stults, who's an assistant superintendent for District 2, said 11 classrooms will be leased from the college, in both the Whitney Building and the Mohns Science Center, although terms of the lease haven't yet been worked out.

Stults said The Wright Place, which is District 2's alternative junior high school, would move back to the Early Building on the Sheridan Junior High School campus.

He said the current Fort Mackenzie High School staff will move to the Sheridan College campus to become the Schiffer Collaborative School faculty. And, he said, the students will also be able to take college-level classes if they desire.

In the meantime, Stults said, District 2 is also continuing to work with the state facilities commission on the design and construction funds for the new John C. Schiffer school, which would be built on the college campus.
