As residents of Northbrook/Glenview School District 30, we have the opportunity to speak up and support our students. On April 4, we are faced with an important choice for our community. We will be asked in the upcoming consolidated election, 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.
By voting “YES”, we can make a positive difference in our children’s lives.
Voting “YES” on this referendum will allow for a new middle school facility that will finally match the high educational standards for which District 30 receives awards.
Today, Maple School is plagued with a long list of physical and structural problems; a “no” vote or not voting will force the sinking of tens of millions of dollars to simply keep a 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 like ours requires.
Instead, a “YES” vote will be a wise investment in our school facilities and in furthering excellence of education in District 30. As District 30 residents: We can protect our property values and direct our future tax dollars into a necessary new facility. All we need to do is vote “YES” on the ballot during early voting or on April 4. If not now, when?
