ST. CLOUD - More classrooms, special education rooms and lunchroom space will be added to Madison Elementary this summer.

The St. Cloud area school board awarded a bid to KUE Contractors, Incorporated for $980,815 for renovations and additions to the building. The project is being paid for through the District fund balance.

The renovations will come in two phases. The first phase will happen this summer and includes adding two new classrooms, two special education rooms and more space to the kitchen area.

Phase two would happen next year and would add another classroom, a special education workroom and would relocate the school office to the north of the building. The hope is to make the building more secure by moving the office towards the entrance.

Madison was running out of space due to growing enrollment. The St. Cloud Area School District passed the 10,100 student enrollment mark this year. It’s the first time in over 10 years the district has had over 10,000 students.

Clearview Elementary, Kennedy Community School and North Junior High are also under renovation due to increased enrollment.
