Hillsboro High School Building Project Update Information

High School Building Project Update

The Community Unit School District #3 Board of Education has held three public meetings to solicit public questions and input regarding a Hillsboro High School building project.  At the second meeting on November 18, 2015 three project concepts were presented and reviewed.  Subsequent feedback to the District has overwhelmingly been in support of the concept which involved building a new school to replace all but the vocational building.  That concept has been further developed guided by public input.  Below are links to the latest revision of the building plan.  It was presented to the public at a meeting on December 8. The estimated cost of this project is $34 million.
