In addition to two new elementary schools and a new addition on Gifford Elementary to house grades six to eight, Racine Unified families will see changes in other buildings as well.

New computer labs, fresh paint, new floors, a new auditorium, new technologies, upgrades and more. There is also new programming beyond the Academies of Racine at Case, Horlick and Park high schools; a Montessori curriculum at Giese Elementary, new resources for elementary grade math classes, and expanded mental health services at three elementary schools among others.

The new Knapp and Olympia Brown schools are the first new school buildings constructed in the district in over 40 years.

District officials released the video above as a commercial of sorts to bring the Unified community together in anticipation for the new school year.

The first day of class for the 2016-2017 school year is Thursday. Click here for a list of start and end times for each Racine Unified’s schools.
