 Our Vision: Ignite Passion. Inspire Excellence. Imagine Possibilities.
Dear Community,

District 41 is in the process of exploring facilities plans options in hopes of creating space to support full-day kindergarten and improving the physical space of each school building overall. The community is invited to participate in this process with us. I hope you will consider serving on our new Facilities Community Task Force. All are welcome!

An informational meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 6, 7 p.m. at Hadley Junior High, Library Media Center, 240 Hawthorne Blvd., in Glen Ellyn.

The Facilities Community Task Force will be charged with further studying the possible solution to space problems throughout the district. The task force will present a report to the Board of Education highlighting the most viable facilities plan to accomplish the following:

  • Space at elementary schools to support full-day kindergarten
  • Removal of portables at Hadley Junior High School
  • Relieve overcrowding at elementary schools
  • Allow for flexible learning space and adequate core space at all five schools

  • The work of this committee will start in May and could continue throughout the summer.

    I am encouraged by this opportunity to plan the future of our district together. Great schools do matter. We are committed to being a great school district by providing the best possible education and learning environments for our students.

    Thank you for your support and partnership.

    Paul Gordon
