BOARD OF EDUCATION MESSAGE ON FACILITY PLANS

AND 2014-15 SCHOOL CALENDAR

 

Dear Western Springs Community:

 

At its meeting on February 24, 2014, the District 101 Board of Education selected Henry Bros. Co. (HBC), based in Hickory Hills, IL, to complete planned facility improvements at each of our four school campuses. These construction projects will, among other things, enhance current learning areas; add instructional space; provide intervention rooms that meet current and projected needs for small group instruction; improve safety and security; create fixed spaces for the arts including band, orchestra, music, and fine arts; and add spaces for community and therapeutic purposes. Planned improvements include completing upgrades to the HVAC systems that were partially completed in 2003, and will enable District 101 to air­condition our buildings for a reasonable incremental cost.

 

 

HBC was the lowest responsible bidder, at a total cost of approximately $11.9 million, and has appropriate qualifications and relevant experience necessary to complete these projects. As part of its extensive planning work, the Board and its financial consultants identified a conservative method for funding construction via rollover and refinancing of existing debt, bond issuance, and use of operating funds. This method will not require an increase in taxes at this time, and no referendum is anticipated to be necessary until 2020.

 

 

Exterior construction may begin as soon as the third week of March, in conjunction with the District’s spring break. Interior construction will begin following June 5, 2014 (the expected last day of school), with a contracted construction completion date of August 15, 2014. The first day of the 2014­2015 School Year will be September 2, 2014. The Board is confident that the contracted construction end date and financial incentives for on­time completion will ensure that the school buildings will be safe and ready for students in time for the September 2 start date.

We as a Board are excited about the enhanced learning environments that will be created through the execution of this project, and we are pleased to be able to do so in an economically responsible way for the taxpayers of our community.

 

 

Sincerely ,

Kathy Wennerstrum
