Expansion of Wayne High School’s technology to provide workforce training for students


The addition would be built at the back of the auditorium in an area that is currently used as a parking lot, as well as for marching band practice, Sorrell said. This construction would result in the loss of 26 parking spaces. Sorrell said the site has about 1,100 parking spaces and added that staff consider a reduction of 26 spaces negligible for day-to-day operations.

Plans also include adding a covered walkway connecting the main high school and auditorium facilities, as well as improvements to the parking lot adjacent to the building addition, he said.

Mike Ruetschle of Ruetschle Architects was in attendance Monday and said the expansion project, which involves a partnership with the Miami Valley Career Technology Center, will provide workforce learning opportunities for students at- beyond academic pathways.

“If any of you have been trying to make an offer or look for a contractor or HVAC technician that’s tough, so for Wayne to bring this opportunity to students in the community, that’s really exciting” , said Ruetschle.

The current Wayne High School building was part of a $186 million project to build it, along with a middle school and five elementary schools after voters approved a $6.92 million bond issue in 2008, which provided just under half of the construction costs. The council approved development plans in 2009, and the new high school officially opened in January 2013.
