Learn about Barrington schools' Blueprint 220
No one can say Barrington Area Unit District 220 officials aren't doing their best to get feedback from residents about a long-term facilities plan called Blueprint 220.
The plan will detail potential school renovations designed to meet future education needs, in part through flexible spaces and better technology.
Late last year, District 220 launched the first of a dozen community meetings for residents to view presentations and ask about the tentative master plan. Now, district leaders want to hear from residents again and have set three dates for meetings that'll include presentations from officials.
The first Blueprint 220 session is set for 9 a.m. Saturday, May 12, at Barrington High School's guidance resource center, 616 W. Main St.
For those who can't make it that day, there is a Blueprint 220 meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, May 14, at Grove Avenue Elementary School's gymnasium, 900 S. Grove Ave. in Barrington, and 9:30 a.m. Thursday, May 17, at the library of Barrington Middle School-Station Campus, 215 Eastern Ave.
At a Barrington High gathering in October, visitors heard about potential building needs for physical activity and wellness, visual and performing arts, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics career pathways.
