New School Information
On September 26, 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 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 is the most suitable location to create a learning environment that will serve Lisle 202 elementary students for generations to come.
Lisle 202 is pleased to share that it has secured the ability to issue bonds to assist with the cost of the new building. As a result, similar to getting a new mortgage after your current mortgage is paid off, a new bond (or loan) will be used for the construction of the new building without increasing taxes for District residents beyond what is currently paid.
The Facility Planning Process is moving forward with the architects carefully evaluating educational goals and space requirements to best support teaching and learning.
The school district anticipates breaking ground for the new school during the summer of 2018. The Lisle 202 community will have the opportunity to watch the vision turn to reality during construction over the following year with a target completion date for the 2019-2020 school year.
We invite you to check in frequently to stay up-to-date on the most current information regarding the new elementary facility.
