APPLETON - Students at an Appleton school are settling into a new space this year.
Thanks to a one dollar per year lease from Outagamie County, the Appleton School District renovated an unused building at Plamann Park.
Now the more than 160 students at the Montessori Charter School moved from its cramped space in Johnston Elementary School.
Renovations began in July and are still on-going but the district is happy with the new space and the partnership with the county.
"The partnership is critical for us to provide a place for Montessori to grow. Our elementary schools are all at capacity and there just really would have been no other way for us to make this happen," said Judy Baseman, Assistant Superintendent with the Appleton School District.
The school district earmarked $500,000 for the renovations.
Much of the work was completed by parents and staff to keep the project on budget.
