Hawthorn District 73 is growing. The District’s seven schools are currently at or above capacity and enrollment is projected to continue rising. Classes are being taught on stages, in mobile classrooms without bathrooms, and in spaces not intended to be used for instruction. Class sizes are increasing, in some cases to 30+ students.
The District and Board of Education gathered input from the community, parents, staff, and worked with a team of of architects and builders to develop an Educational Facilities Master Plan (EFMP) to address these issues. The Board of Education unanimously approved placing two referenda on the November 6, 2018, ballot to provide funds for implementing the EMFP.
