Dear Elmhurst D205 School Community,

On November 6, the community approved a $168.5M referendum to build two new schools, improve safety and security across the District, provide the space for all-day kindergarten, add future ready learning spaces at all school sites, and meet many other existing maintenance and infrastructure needs at all of its campuses.

Thank you for valuing education. Thank you for the commitment you have demonstrated for current and future generations of learners. Thank you for allowing our students and employees to learn together in safe environments. Thank you for ensuring that our amazing education professionals are able to do the work to support our vision of all students graduating college, career and life ready. Thank you for doing your part to help D205 secure a place as a National Leader in Future Ready Learning.

Election Day was the culmination of years of tireless work by hundreds of people, beginning with Focus 205, which started in the spring of 2015. Over the past four years, there have been large group meetings, focus group meetings, meetings at every school site, community forums, coffees, special engagements, two quantitative phone surveys, an online interactive survey, an all-day kindergarten study, and an educational alignment study. All of this helped inform the administration and Board as to the District’s needs and community priorities and likewise provided information to help the community make an informed decision.

There are too many people to thank, and yet I cannot bring this to a close without extending my deepest gratitude to some amazing individuals. Board President Kara Caforio co-chaired the Focus 205 Facilitating Team with John Morrissey.  The referendum’s passage simply would not have happened without her undying commitment and support. Her leadership guided the D205 Board of Education, which had the courage to take the question to the community. The BOE’s commitment to study, at length, D205’s facilities needs, both current and future, was a massive undertaking that will ensure the legacy of our great schools for generations to come.

A special thanks goes to former board member Emily Bastedo, who chaired the Ballot Initiative Committee. She led the “Yes” campaign with an unparalleled vision, skill, drive, and a passion for education. My gratitude extends even further to the BIC team of volunteers, who put their lives aside for three months for this valuable work. You are absolutely amazing!

The business community also rallied to support D205. Two people, Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce and Industry CEO, John Quigley, and Chairman of the Board, Ken Bartels, were instrumental to the cause and encouraged their constituency to formally endorse the referendum. Thank you!

Finally, the endorsements and recommendations from parents, administrators and staff, principals, residents, retired educators, area professionals and advisors, PTA groups, the Elmhurst Teachers’ Council, the D205 Foundation and so many others gave the Master Facility Plan validity.

I look forward to working with the community in the weeks and months to come to bring the Master Facility Plan to reality for our students, who now have a brighter future today, than they did yesterday.

Sincerely,
Dr. David Moyer
Superintendent
Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205

Voters approved a $168.5 million referendum to improve District 205 schools. As of 10 p.m., the ballot measure passed receiving nearly 63% of voters' support. The school community pledged over 10,500 votes “yes” to support the measure to enhance safety and security, rebuild and renovate school buildings, and create future-ready schools.

 

"I would like to thank all of the people who worked so hard to make this a reality that not only addresses our long term facility issues but also provides modern, safe, high quality learning spaces for our children to learn and our employees to effectively facilitate personalized learning opportunities for all children.  The outcome today reinforces the community's value on the importance of education.  This is a banner day for Elmhurst that will help ensure a healthy, vibrant community for decades to come," Superintendent Dr. David Moyer said.

 

Board President Kara Caforio added, “The Board of Education is grateful for the outpouring of support by our community for our schools. The results of the vote exhibit our community's continued commitment to providing excellent education for both current students and generations of students to come.  We look forward to working with the community as the Master Facility Plan now becomes a reality for our students."

 

The Board of Education along with Dr. Moyer will address future steps for the school district during the next regular BOE meeting at 7:30 p.m. on November 13, 2018.

 

Tonight’s decision culminates nearly four years of community engagement, originally called Focus 205, that was born out the school community’s desire to approach vast building improvements in a comprehensive way. On Aug. 20, 2018, D205’s Board of Education voted 7-0 to place a Master Facility Plan on the ballot that would rebuild an aging Field and Lincoln Elementary Schools, expand and renovate Edison Elementary School, and make room for All-Day Kindergarten as well as make substantial maintenance and future-ready improvements across the school district. The plan is set to address D205’s building needs for the next 20 years.

The Illinois Civic Mission Coalition (ICMC) has recognized York Community High School as an Illinois Democracy School. York will receive a stipend from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, which convenes the ICMC to continue civic learning initiatives, as well as a new banner for public display.

“Our high school people have worked very hard to ensure that the curriculum is relevant, and our social studies department is a prime example of that. Our vision is all students graduate college, career and life ready, and nothing defines life ready more in this country than the ability to effectively participate and function in a democratic society,” D205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer said.

York Community High School Principal Erin DeLuga added, “Mr. Mike DiNovo and the Democracy Schools team have worked tirelessly to attain recognition for York as a Democracy school. In that pursuit, we hope to provide enriching civic experiences for our students across content areas. It very much aligns to meeting each student where s/he thrives. It also strengthens our interdisciplinary efforts. Kudos to all of those who worked from the roots up.”

Since 2006, 75 Illinois high schools have successfully completed a school-wide civic assessment to be recognized as Democracy Schools. The Robert R. McCormick Foundation has convened the ICMC since 2010. Learn more at www.McCormickFoundation.org/DemocracySchools.

Democracy Schools provide students with authentic experiences in the rights, responsibilities, and tensions inherent to living in a democracy. Participating schools create opportunities and experiences that empower students to nurture and sustain democracy, including: engaging in current and controversial issue discussions, participating in democratic simulations, and providing service learning opportunities.

“We commend York H.S. for their tenacity and enthusiasm in expanding and improving civic learning across the curriculum and throughout Illinois,” said Sonia Mathew, Civic Learning Manager at the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. “Through these practices and experiences student see first-hand the critical role they play in shaping government and society.”
