This Referendum Will:

  • Establish Full-day Kindergarten
  • Build A New Early Childhood Center
  • Increase Safety And Security
  • Upgrade Technology
  • Improve Stem Curriculum

Detailed Overview

AT DISTRICT 45 WE ARE COLLABORATING WITH OUR COMMUNITY TO PREPARE ALL OUR STUDENTS TO SUCCESSFULLY NAVIGATE A DYNAMIC WORLD.

Projects Overview

Early Childhood Center

The referendum centers on building a new Early Childhood Center and moving all our existing early childhood programming to this new building. This will increase our students’ instructional time and academic performance while leading to operational savings due to consolidation and childcare savings for parents. It will also free up space at our elementary schools to pursue additional improvements.

Full-Day Kindergarten

The referendum will implement full-day kindergarten, which will increase academic and social-emotional learning for our early learners and provide childcare savings for parents.

Safety & Security Upgrades

The referendum will make necessary safety and security upgrades at all schools, including secure entrances, alarms, and secure doors, as well as increasing parking and improving drop-off zones.

Technology Upgrades

The referendum will continue to upgrade our technology to broaden our student learning experience and enhance our curriculum through better access to technology.

Science Labs & Music Rooms

The referendum will equip science labs with specific instructional space to support an enhanced science, technology, and math curriculum. It will also provide increased opportunities for children in band, choir, orchestra, and music.

Classroom Renovations

The referendum will modernize learning environments for students through renovated classrooms and improved furniture, optimizing spaces for learning, increasing social and emotional learning for students, and improving climate and working conditions for staff.

ADA Accessibility

The referendum will address ADA accessibility needs to bring our district further into compliance with the law and increase accessibility for those with special needs.

Infrastructure & Life Safety

The referendum will lead to safer and well-maintained schools through investments into capital projects including roofs, parking, pavement, doors, windows, bathrooms, flooring, HVAC, and energy efficient lighting, which leads to long-term operational savings.

Student Support Spaces

The referendum will provide student support spaces, leading to healthier students with stronger social and emotional skills, improved collaborative spaces, and designated space for special education.
