District 200 schools are in critical need
of repairs and updates.
Students in 19 of our 20 schools frequently face one or more of the following:
These are not "wants." They are crucial repairs and updates needed to protect our student’s health and safety, the educational excellence our community expects, and our property values. You may ask, "how did we get to this point with our buildings?" In large part because the state of Illinois is 50 out of 50 in percentage of funding for education. Dead last. This has meant that since 2008, District 200 has lost $40 million in state educational funding. Therefore, it is up to us, citizens of District 200, to repair our schools.
The District 200 Board of Education has voted to place a referendum question on the April 4, 2017 ballot asking for voter approval to issue $132.5 million in bonds. This money will be used to perform $154.5 million in critical repairs and updates to 19 of our 20 schools in the district. The remaining $22 million will come from current reserves and future year’s budgets.
Vote YES on April 4, 2017!
