At its Aug. 14 meeting, the Barrington 220 Board of Education discussed the next steps in the Blueprint 220 master-facilities initiative. The board anticipates adopting a master-facilities plan in early September. The plan is a blueprint for how Barrington 220 schools can evolve in the next 20 years, in order to continue preparing our students to be successful graduates.
This fall the board will seek community feedback to determine which parts of the master-plan are most important to the community. This feedback will help the board decide which upgrades it will ask the community to invest in, should the board place a referendum question on the April 2019 general election ballot.
Currently, the board is considering a two part engagement process, which involves a telephone survey in the Barrington 220 boundary area, as well as forming a referendum advisory committee made up of a large number of community members. The community engagement phase will take place in October and November.
COMING SOON: community members will soon be able to view a new Blueprint 220 website, created by architectural firm DLR Group. This new online tool will serve as a primary resource, where community members can learn details about the master-plan and receive up to date information on the Blueprint 220 initiative.
