Building Future: Referendum Progress
On March 17, 2020, the community approved a referendum for $119 million to allow District 34 to repair, replace and update our buildings.
This successful referendum signals that residents understand the importance of reinvesting in the school district’s capital assets. The impact of the referendum will positively impact the community for decades to come, and it will be felt at every school, in every classroom, by every District 34 student. We recognize that we are tasked with Building Future.
