Learn About Referendum Ballot Question

The Maine Township District 207 Board of Education, upon the recommendation of the superintendent and the Community Task Force, adopted a resolution at the August 6, 2018 meeting to place a $195 million bond issue on the ballot for the November 6, 2018 election. The district has developed an overview flyer to share information about the referendum.

In general terms, the funds would be used to:

  • Improve safety and security by constructing new front entrances at each high school with secure vestibules to prevent visitors from entering the buildings before being cleared by school personnel.
  • Replace outdated plumbing, electrical and mechanical systems to extend the useful life of the existing buildings; reduce costly emergency repairs; and improve energy efficiency within the district.
  • Install new fire suppression systems at all three high schools. 
  • Relocate and renovate special education spaces for students.
  • Update classrooms and labs at all three high schools to create flexible learning spaces that promote collaboration.
