Referendum Information

Enrollment Crisis

The District 26 Referendum did not pass on April 2, 2019.  I want to thank the 2000 community members who came out to vote.  With enrollment continuing to increase as expected, the Board of Education needs to make some difficult decisions to find the next best solution for our students and community.  During the spring Board meetings, they will be discussing the pros, cons and costs of options before moving forward with plans. We have already run out of classrooms at Indian Grove. This will directly impact instructional programming beginning in the fall of 2019.  Please continue to check the District website for updates as we work to meet the challenges of this continuing crisis.

Strategic Planning

Chinese Proverb Thank you to all of our community members that participated in the Future Trails community engagement sessions during the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years. Our next step moving forward is to update our strategic plan. Our plan focuses on all students being Heart READY, Head READY and Life READY. We will achieve this with an intentional focus in two strategic areas:

  • Providing engaging and purposeful pathways to personalized academic growth.
  • Cultivating resourceful, resilient citizens through social emotional learning in a nurturing environment.

This spring we are working with a team of students, staff and parents to strengthen our vision, define our objectives, prioritize our need and determine communication methods.
We will be meeting three times a year after our initial sessions this spring. If you are interested in participating, please contact Veronica Kagan at or 847.297.4120.
