Keep Central Central endorses Unit 4’s proposed $183M referendum

From the press release from Keep Central Central:


Keep Central Central (KCC) has voted to endorse and actively support the Unit 4 School District’s proposed $183,400,000 bond referendum.

On April 15, 2015 KCC asked the newly elected Unit 4 Board of Education to consider the adoption of a plan which incorporates the following concepts:

  • The retention of a new, modernized Central High School in a central Champaign location
  • Based upon facility needs and financial resources, renovation and expansion of the structure currently used as Central High School at its existing location to maximize use of the existing building.
  • The development of a long-term, comprehensive master plan encompassing all the school district’s major construction needs.

The Board of Education diligently embarked on an open planning process which resulted in the creation of a facilities plan that meets the needs and expectations of Unit 4’s students and community far into the future.

KCC is planning a RALLY for Unit 4 to outline its support for the bond referendum and engage in a detailed discussion why KCC supports the proposed bond referendum. The RALLY will take place at the Champaign Public Library, in the Robeson Room on Saturday, September 17, 2016, between 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM.

Keep Central Central would like to thank the Unit 4 Board of Education, Unit 4 Staff and local community volunteers who have been involved in the analysis of the school district’s master construction plan and development of the bond referendum proposal.

To implement the master construction plan for our local schools, please VOTE Yes for the Unit 4 Schools bond referendum on November 8, 2016.
