Referendum

On November 8, 2016, the Champaign community overwhelmingly voted for the $183.4 million referendum to bring much-needed upgrades our schools. These projects will result in great new spaces for students and staff:  

The 2016 referendum was a long time in the making, as the Board of Education and district administration watched enrollment steadily grow for nearly eight years. Following two school bond elections on November 4, 2014, and April 7, 2015, that did not result in project funding, the district embarked on a collaborative planning process in 2016 with a diverse group of stakeholders to propose a plan that would better reflect the needs of the community as a whole. The key difference this time was the decision to keep Central High School in its current location, prioritizing facility needs and other elementary and middle schools in need of repair. Documentation of the planning for these elections remains online as an archive. Thank you, Champaign, for your support!
