Message from the Superintendent


I sincerely hope all of you will be able to join us on Monday, September 17, for the second annual State of the Schools presentation at the York Commons at 7:00 p.m. The evening will celebrate many of the outstanding accomplishments in D205, feature presentations and videos highlighting this year’s learning and teaching priorities, and provide information on the November 6 referendum.

On August 20, the Board unanimously approved placing a $168.5M referendum on the ballot for November. If approved, the average annual tax increase for the owner of a $500,000 home would be $150.

There will be many additional opportunities for the community to learn about the referendum and the Master Facilities Plan.  The District website includes and FAQ document, a resource link that highlights the key elements of the plan, a tax calculator, historical documents with information from Focus 205 and various presentations and studies that helped inform the development of the plan.

There will be a Community Finance Night on Monday, September 24, at Lincoln Elementary School at 7:00 p.m. with building tours beginning at 6:00 p.m.

A series of building tours is scheduled for Lincoln, Field, Jackson and Churchville schools, and tours of our other sites will be available upon request.

Soon, the Master Facilities Plan link will be updated to include five videos chronicling the condition of our buildings across the District. Whether or not you are able to participate in any of the scheduled tours, I strongly encourage you to watch these short segments.

I will continue make the rounds to all of the local PTA meetings and other events around town to share information with the community about the priorities outlined in the plan, so I hope to see you at some point in the near future. Another good upcoming opportunity to learn more about the referendum is at the first PTA Superintendent’s Coffee at Hawthorne Elementary School on September 19, at 1:30 p.m.

Please educate yourself on the issues and vote.
