The plan will also consider: safety/security; air conditioning; sixth-through-eighth grade middle schools; class size/enrollment projections; and District facility use. View the below resources to learn more about facility planning in District 58.


Primary resources

Citizen Task Force

  • District 58 formed a Citizen Task Force comprising a representative group of 40 community members. This group will evaluate community support for a funding proposal to address districtwide capital improvement needs and provide feedback to the superintendent about District 58’s facility needs and funding solutions to inform a recommendation to the Board of Education. The group will meet four to six times this winter and spring, and meeting materials will be publicly shared.
