June 28, 2022 Referendum

A referendum will appear on the Tuesday, June 28, 2022, Gubernatorial Primary Election ballot asking for voter permission to use part of our cash reserves to construct a new school building on the western portion of the existing Fernway school property. This new school will replace the current Fernway Park Elementary School.

There will be NO ADDITIONAL TAX IMPACT associated with this construction. District 140 will pay for the Fernway project entirely out of cash reserves. If voters approve this project, it will allow D140 to construct a new school building using money already saved and earmarked for the maintenance and care of our facilities.
