Long-range facilities plan options will change Denfeld
By Paul Lundgren

Superintendent Kieth Dixon has announced plans to close, upgrade and build new schools in the Duluth School District. Each of the three alternatives presented would mean changes for all of the city’s schools.

Detailed information about the plans is available on the alumni association's list of Duluth Public Schools Long-range Plan Resources. News of the ongoing process is available on the Media Coverage page.

Here is an overview of how each plan would affect Denfeld:

Red Plan
Denfeld would remain a high school and be remodeled and expanded to support 1,500 students. Central High School would close under this plan and some of its students would attend Denfeld.

White Plan
Denfeld would become a junior high school and a new high school would be built in western Duluth. Like in the Red Plan, Central would close, so the new high school building would support 1,500 students.

Blue Plan
Denfeld would become a junior high school and there would be no high school in western Duluth. Central would become the city’s only high school, serving 3,000 students.

Dixon plans to bring a final solution to the school board for a first reading in May and a vote in June.
