Linn-Mar Looks Ahead

The Linn-Mar School District actively updates facility plans to meet the future needs of our students and community.

Superintendent Bisgard shared the five-year facilities plan in April 2022 after it was approved by the Linn-Mar School Board. If all goes as planned, phase one of the plan has a targeted completion date of the fall of 2025.

Projects in the first phase of the plan include:

-Improved parking lot access at Excelsior Middle School.

-Expansion of the High School’s North Parking Lot (near the stadium)

-Replacement and Relocation of the High School Tennis Courts (adjacent to the softball-baseball complex)

-Administrative Building (near the Excelsior campus)

-A Larger Performance Venue on the west side of the High School (adjacent to the current door one entrance)


Phase two of the five-year facility plan would have a start date of late 2023, with completion tentatively set for the fall of 2027.

Projects in phase two include:

-An Indoor Activity Center at the High School. (to be constructed north of the main gym)

-Renovations to the High School Extension (The current LRC. Also home to the Venture, COMPASS and ATLAS programs)

-Additions to the High School South Parking Lot (following the relocation of the high school tennis courts)
