Crystal Lake-based School District 155 summer construction projects are underway at all four high schools as part of the 2018 Capital Improvements Project. District officials will publish weekly video updates from each school to give taxpayers an inside look at the progress.
The Board of Education approved $13,973,365 in capital projects for necessary maintenance and upkeep of the district’s schools.
Renovations include water lines, roofs, track resurfacing, parking lots, clock intercom systems, door replacements, tennis courts and air conditioning for the cafeteria and kitchen at Crystal Lake Central.
“We want to be transparent with taxpayers, and we certainly understand $14 million in improvements is significant. It’s important for our community to see the changes we’re making that benefit our students and community,” Superintendent Steve Olson said.
The district will publish weekly video updates on the district’s website, www.d155.org, and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, search @CHSD155.
The updates will cover visible projects such as the tennis courts replacement at Central and Prairie Ridge and the relocation of Haber Oaks, and also give community members the opportunity to see the small improvements, such as the water line replacement at Cary-Grove.
“D-155 is dedicated to serving the community and keeping our community informed, and we appreciate our taxpayers’ feedback when we share construction project updates,” Olson said.
The district’s high schools are Crystal Lake Central, Crystal Lake South, Cary-Grove and Prairie Ridge. Alternative school Haber Oaks is consolidating with Crystal Lake South.
