The residents of Northbrook/Glenview School District 30 are faced with an important choice for the community. On April 4 in the upcoming consolidated election, residents of District 30 will be asked if the District should pursue the funding for a new Maple middle school and state mandated health and life safety improvements at the District’s two elementary schools. These residents will have the chance, by voting ‘YES’, to make an enormous positive community impact on the students of today and tomorrow.
Voting ‘YES’ on this referendum will allow for a new facility that will finally match the high educational standards that District 30 receives awards for and keep it a highly desirable school district to live in.
Today, Maple school is plagued with a long list of physical and structural problems; a ‘no’ vote will force the sinking of tens of millions of dollars to simply keep the crumbling patchwork building afloat. These ‘Band-Aid’ patches would not even address keeping up with the educational and curriculum changes that a top tier district requires.
Instead, a ‘YES’ vote will be a wise investment in the facilities and in furthering excellence of education in District 30. District 30 residents: Protect your property values, direct your future tax dollars into a necessary new facility, and choose ‘YES’ on the ballot during early voting or on April 4. Today’s and tomorrow’s children will thank you.
