The first meeting will be from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. May 12 at York Community High School, 355 W. St. Charles Road, Elmhurst.

The presentation, which was previewed at the May 8 Board of Education meeting, outlines the district's vision for the future and provides information about the district, including facilities' ages and deficits, as well as enrollment data.

Proposed facilities improvements have been divided into four categories: two that support basic maintenance needs and two that feature enhancements necessary for all-day kindergarten and the creation of future-ready learning spaces throughout the district. The four options include a total of eight proposed scenarios.

Information on the cost and property tax impact of each scenario is included in the presentation.
