Wheeling Township Elementary District 21 will host three town hall meetings to provide information and answer questions about the Nov. 6 tax increase referendum to fund building upgrades.

The meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 11, at Holmes Middle School; Monday, Sept. 24, at London Middle School; and Tuesday, Sept. 25, at Cooper Middle School. All sessions will begin at 7 p.m. and take place in each school's main gym.


The district this week also set up an email address, referendum@ccsd21.org, where residents can send questions about the referendum.

With voter approval, the measure would allow the district to borrow $69 million for facility improvements at all 14 buildings, including tighter security at school entrances and air conditioning in all classrooms. It would cost an extra $74 in property taxes for the owner of an average $300,000 home.
