Like a house, there is a natural life cycle for our school buildings. Through our Facility Master Plan and capital projects planning, we are able to identify when key capital projects (roof, window, plumbing, mechanical and electrical upgrades and replacement) need to be completed. In District 200, many of our schools were built at similar points in time, and therefore are on a similar renewal cycle. Our facilities are due for major renewals and renovations.
For over a year, the Board of Education and District staff have engaged our community, staff and architects to develop a Facilities Master Plan. This plan includes an educational assessment of our buildings, combined with an existing physical assessment, to provide a detailed, long-term view of our building needs. The Board has spent a great deal of time developing, studying and prioritizing projects that will preserve and enhance learning environments through cost-effective solutions.
The Board has prioritized approximately $154 million in projects at 19 of the District's 20 schools. We must upgrade and improve our facilities now in order to keep our schools in good, safe working order that our community expects. If you'd like to learn more about the projects at each school, please visit the following pages:
New Early Learning Center
Donate today! As a Foundation supporter, you now have the option to donate to a specific classroom. The Foundation has partnered with the Wheaton-Warrenville PTA Council in creating the Fund-a-Classroom, crowdfunding program. Nine district teachers submitted proposals for ten different projects that require funding.
“With an all-volunteer board, we are pleased to operate in a manner that ensures that 87% of all donations directly benefit our students. The new Fund-a-Classroom program provides a way for a donor to further target his or her contribution,” says Andy Johnson, president of the Student Excellence Foundation.
Current projects open for funding:
