Board of Education Deliberating about Referendum, Facilities

Board of Education Deliberating about Referendum, Facilities

Residents within the boundary area of Lake Zurich Community Unit School District 95 are invited to attend upcoming meetings where the District 95 Board of Education will continue its discussions about putting forward a bond referendum to support facility improvements. Based on many points of community feedback, such a referendum would lower tax payments compared to homeowners' current payments AND propose building STEAM labs at middle schools and the high school, improve libraries, provide air conditioning at 5 schools, renovate classrooms at the high school, renovate or replace May Whitney elementary and more.  The Board will continue to deliberate publicly at its Nov. 9, Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and Dec. 21 meetings. The public is invited and encouraged to attend these public meetings. Meetings are also recorded and available on the district website, www.lz95.org, under District 95-> Board of Education.

History

The District engaged the community in 2016 during a six month long strategic planning process that included a team of more than 40 people from across different parts of the community. The result was a new mission, vision, and values for the District and a strategic plan establishing priorities for the next 5 years. Top among those was maintaining excellent finances and improving facilities.

The District again engaged the community in October of 2017 specifically to discuss finances and facility improvements. Postcards were mailed to every household in the district inviting residents to engagement sessions to hear more about the options and provide feedback. Nearly 300 community members attended these sessions and then provided feedback.  Phone surveys were also conducted to gather input before and after the community engagement sessions. Over 1000 community members participated in the phone surveys.

The feedback from the community outreach conducted this fall has been tabulated and made available to the Board of Education to help guide their decisions around any potential bond issuances and facility project decisions and priorities.

Board meeting dates, times, and locations are available on the district website.
