News: 

Nov. 9, 2022:

The community approved District 58’s $179 million bond referendum to improve District 58’s 13 school facilities in the Nov. 8, 2022 election. With 100% of precincts reporting, unofficial results posted on the DuPage Election Commission website show 67.13% of voters in favor and 32.87% against the measure. The results will be certified by Tuesday, Nov. 29.

“On behalf of District 58, I want to thank the families, staff, Board members and community members who participated in the five-year community engagement process leading up to this vote. While the community has discussed District 58’s facilities for decades, the current Strategic Plan, which began development in fall 2017, created a clear plan toward addressing our facility needs,” said Superintendent Dr. Kevin Russell. “For those community members who did not support the referendum, please know that we hear you and appreciate your voice. District 58 will continue to expend funds in a fiscally-responsible manner while respecting taxpayers. We are very grateful to our community for their continued support of our schools and for recognizing the needs across our facilities.” 

As a next step, District 58 will finalize the bond issuance with the Board of Education and will work with a construction management at-risk firm and the District’s architects to design final plans for school building maintenance projects, secured entrances, air conditioning installation, air quality/ventilation improvements and the middle school expansion.

All spending from the bond measure will be publicly disclosed. In addition, the District will continue to host meetings to collect design input and provide updates on the progress of the improvements. Any updates will also be posted on this Facility Planning webpage. Please check back as more information becomes available!
