D86 referendum information night – October 17th

On November 6th, voters in the D86 district will be asked to approve a referendum for $166 million for significant repairs on both Hinsdale Central and Hinsdale South High Schools. The Hinsdalean is hosting an information night at the Community House on October 17th from 7:00 – 8:30 pm with Superintendent Bruce Law and Board Members Jennifer Planson and Nancy Pollak.

PURPOSE OF REFERENDUM: Mandatory safety, security, infrastructure, and accessibility improvements. In addition to the mandatory improvements, the use of funds include pool repair and improvement, library, classroom, STEM, special ed and performing arts facilities renovations. The projects in the referendum were identified by hundreds of people—community members, parents, faculty, staff, administrators, Board members and industry experts—for over three years.
