The time to vote on whether to build a new addition onto the current High School and house all the students on one campus, or to not build on to the existing high school building. April 2, 2018 is the date of the big vote. Take advantage of your freedom and come out and vote for what you believe our community should do about our aging schools. Your voice matters! Let us hear it.
Public meetings focused on the referendum will be on March 14th at the Elementary School and March 28th at the High School. These meetings are designed to walk community members though the fine details of the referendum and why it is being considered a feasible solution to our aging school district.
Below is a link to the flyer that was sent to members of the East Dubuque community explaining the reasoning behind a new school. Also, is the link to the presentation given by Mr. Potts on the reasoning behind the referendum.

Getting Our District Up to Code
In 2016, the East Dubuque School District pinpointed all of the issues it is facing with simply getting its buildings to meet federal and state codes. A 10 year long plan was devised and East Dubuque School District will have to achieve all state and federal mandated modifications by 2026. These do not include any dreams of grandeur of making East Dubuque a more successful place to grow the citizens of the future. These are merely out of date issues with the buildings that the State deems archaic. An example would be exposed wires in a classroom. Below are links that will display the required modifications for the Junior High/High School and for the Elementary School.
