Capital Improvement Projects

 

Over the past several years, the District has created several long-range financial goals which included building reserves to fund capital improvement projects District-wide. A five-year capital improvement plan has been created that will update and expand facilities impacting each student. Planned improvements include the following:

  • Conant High School’s main office was remodeled to provide enhanced support service teams by uniting student services and administration in one central location for convenient student access.

    Students utilize the new student services area at Conant High School. The main office areas at CHS were renovated during the summer of 2014.

  • Renovation and expansion of all swimming pools to grant greater accessibility to students and community organizations while also meeting IHSA competitive standards. The first renovation began at Conant High School during the summer of 2014 and is scheduled for completion by mid-March 2015.
    Pool renovation currently underway at Conant High School.

  • Updated media centers to assist with the transition of learning common spaces into the 21st-century learning environments.
