The board plans to pay for project, estimated to cost about $14 million, by borrowing funds. The board may issue up to $19.8 million in general obligation bonds to pay for the learning center and other projects.

The school would serve preschoolers from throughout the district, which includes portions of Elk Grove Village, Arlington Heights, Des Plaines and Mount Prospect.

It is targeted for opening in August 2015.
