The Illinois Civic Mission Coalition (ICMC) has recognized York Community High School as an Illinois Democracy School. York will receive a stipend from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, which convenes the ICMC to continue civic learning initiatives, as well as a new banner for public display.

“Our high school people have worked very hard to ensure that the curriculum is relevant, and our social studies department is a prime example of that. Our vision is all students graduate college, career and life ready, and nothing defines life ready more in this country than the ability to effectively participate and function in a democratic society,” D205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer said.

York Community High School Principal Erin DeLuga added, “Mr. Mike DiNovo and the Democracy Schools team have worked tirelessly to attain recognition for York as a Democracy school. In that pursuit, we hope to provide enriching civic experiences for our students across content areas. It very much aligns to meeting each student where s/he thrives. It also strengthens our interdisciplinary efforts. Kudos to all of those who worked from the roots up.”

Since 2006, 75 Illinois high schools have successfully completed a school-wide civic assessment to be recognized as Democracy Schools. The Robert R. McCormick Foundation has convened the ICMC since 2010. Learn more at www.McCormickFoundation.org/DemocracySchools.

Democracy Schools provide students with authentic experiences in the rights, responsibilities, and tensions inherent to living in a democracy. Participating schools create opportunities and experiences that empower students to nurture and sustain democracy, including: engaging in current and controversial issue discussions, participating in democratic simulations, and providing service learning opportunities.

“We commend York H.S. for their tenacity and enthusiasm in expanding and improving civic learning across the curriculum and throughout Illinois,” said Sonia Mathew, Civic Learning Manager at the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. “Through these practices and experiences student see first-hand the critical role they play in shaping government and society.”

Following more than three years of community engagement work, including small and large group public meetings and three surveys, the Elmhurst District 205 Board of Education voted 7-0 to place a $168.5 million facilities bond referendum on the November 6, 2018 ballot.

“We were elected to lead our community and oversee its investment in our schools. The Board does not take this responsibility lightly. The potential of this referendum extends far and long beyond this generation of students and is larger than this board and school leadership. The future of our schools belongs to the community,” D205 Board President Kara Caforio said.

Superintendent Dr. David Moyer underscored the importance of collaboration in the process, “I am extremely proud of the work of my administrative team, the Board, teachers, staff, and community to advance the vision of ensuring that all students graduate college, career, and life ready. Together, we have worked very hard to facilitate the development of a Master Facilities Plan and a referendum question that we believe is the right thing for D205.”

The $168.5 million plan addresses needs at all 13 D205 schools. The estimated tax impact will be approximately $150 per year in additional taxes on a $500,000 home.

If the plan is approved by voters on Election Day on November 6, 2018, D205 committees that include architects, construction experts, administrators, parents, staff, and community members will help guide the implementation of the Master Facilities Plan and Referendum goals.

What is on the November Ballot for Students?

  • Improvements identified in the D205 Master Facilities Plan include:
  • Rebuilding 103-year-old Lincoln ­­Elementary School
  • Rebuilding 87-year-old Field Elementary School
  • Providing security updates to the entrance and main offices of Sandburg, Bryan, Churchville, ­­Jackson, and Jefferson schools
  • Creating Future-Focused learning spaces for students that will enhance science, technology, engineering, & math (STEM)
  • Providing classroom space for optional, all-day kindergarten programming.
  • Enhancing districtwide technology infrastructure.
  • Adding or updating air conditioning and other HVAC systems at Jackson and Jefferson elementary schools
  • Renovating aging buildings including:
    • Creating age-appropriate facilities at Madison Early Childhood Center.
    • Renovating and expanding Edison Elementary School
    • Building an auditorium at Churchville Middle School, to ensure all D205 middle schools have similar performance areas.
    • Adding a classroom and stage at Fischer Elementary, to ensure all D205 elementary schools have similar classroom spaces and performance areas.
    • Renovating the auditorium to meet safety expectations at York High School as well as continuing athletic field and school land improvements.
    • Acquiring a new space for the Transition Program, further ensuring success for students with disabilities post-high school.

How will the Ballot Question Read?

The D205 ballot question reads as follows:

Shall the Board of Education of Elmhurst Community Unit School District Number 205, DuPage and Cook Counties, Illinois, build and equip two school buildings to replace the Field and Lincoln Elementary School Buildings; build and equip additions to and alter, repair and equip existing buildings, including but not limited to improving security, providing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) facilities, improving energy-efficiency and technology infrastructure and adding classrooms for full-day kindergarten; improve sites; acquire, improve and equip a building for educational purposes and acquire the site thereof and issue bonds of said School District to the amount of $168,500,000 for the purpose of paying the costs thereof?

Where can I learn more about D205’s Master Facilities Plan/Referendum Question?

Information meetings will be held this fall. Dates and the latest Master Facility Plan information will be available on the District website www.elmhurst205.org. Check for your inbox, mailbox, and the website for details.

Within the last 24 hours, the Board learned that Superintendent Dr. David Moyer recently applied for a superintendent’s position in a large, out-of-state district. Dr. Moyer has since withdrawn from the preliminary search. However, the Board wants time to further discuss his commitment to D205.

 

As a result, the Board will postpone its vote on the referendum until Monday, Aug. 20. “While we, the Board, believe this is the community’s referendum, we want to ensure its leader is committed to D205 at this time,” School Board President Kara Caforio said.
