It takes a village...
As promised, the school district turned to community members to assist with the concept and final design of the new high school. At the school board work session on Monday, November 9, 2020, Wold Architects and Engineers provided an update on plans and progress of the new high school, which is still on track to open in the fall of 2023.

Local Foundations Support Community Meeting Space at New High School
The ISD 761 Foundation and Owatonna Foundation have each donated $250,000 to the Owatonna Public Schools to construct a large community room within the new high school.
The community room will offer a 2,400 square foot meeting space that will be conveniently located near the activities entrance of the new high school with additional access to the outdoor courtyard adjacent to the stadium. The space is intended to be used for community gatherings, parent night celebrations, award ceremonies, and many other possibilities. During the school day, the space will be set for multiple class presentations and other academic activities.
