Harlem (Ill.) district plans high school addition for career and technical education

Dec. 27, 2022
The $16 million upgrade of Harlem High School also will include a renovation of the culinary program space.

The Harlem (Ill.) district plans to build an addition at its high school to improve students’ access to career and technical education.

The Rock River Current reports that the 27,000-square-foot addition to Harlem High School will enable students to have more time in the classroom because they will no longer need to be bused about 3 miles away to where automotive, small-engine repair and welding classes are held.

The roughly $13.5 million expansion will include bays for automotive repairs, a welding lab, learning spaces and a construction lab. It will also include an on-site health clinic for district staff and their dependents.

The district also will make about $2.5 million in additional renovations to the high school’s culinary class space and the childcare area.

The project will be funded in part by $5 million in federal Covid relief funds.
