Welcome to Vision 202
New Elementary School Plans Continue
Progress toward the new Lisle Elementary School continues! The Lisle 202 staff, architects, and construction professionals continue to plan and prepare for the construction to begin at the end of this school year. We invite you to take a look at the latest details below!
Site Approvals Obtained
The new elementary school building is planned to be significantly larger than the current building on the site to accommodate the attendance of the PreK-Fifth grade population. The change in size for the new building required variances were addressed through DuPage County. We are happy to share that the requests were approved last month allowing our building to move forward as planned.
Lisle Elementary School has been thoughtfully designed to ensure the interior space provides optimal learning environments for the developmental needs at each grade level, and, that the exterior space addresses traffic needs and includes dedicated play areas for our students. Here’s an at-a-glance look at some of the building’s features:
- Overall Building Area: Approx. 100,000 SF total
- Capacity: 770 Students
- 35 Total Classrooms
- Small group rooms for personalized instruction/ learning
- Maker space room
- Dedicated band room and music room
- Two visual art classrooms
- Two stem labs
- Dedicated playground for grades PK-1
- Dedicated bus drop off zones separate from car parking spaces
What is the Construction Timeline?
Currently, construction is planned to begin in the summer of 2018, completed in July 2019, and open for learning for the 2019-2020 school year.
Please keep an eye on your mailbox for this year’s Lisle District 202 Annual Report for more details!
In September 2016, after careful consideration, the Lisle Board of Education selected the Meadows site for a new Early Childhood through Fifth Grade school to replace the current aging elementary facilities. There were a number of influencing factors, but as a result of the extensive and valued community input, as well as the professional data collection process, the Board of Education is confident that the Meadows site, which is already owned by the District, is the most prudent location to create a learning environment that will serve Lisle 202 elementary students for generations to come.
