Join us for a ribbon cutting ceremony on April 11, 2023 to celebrate the completion of Build 220 construction at Hough Street Elementary School!
By the end of the 2023-24 school year, all Barrington 220 elementary schools will have a dedicated STEM lab inside their buildings.
On February 27, 2023 a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the end of construction at Countryside Elementary!
At the December 20, 2022 Barrington 220 Board of Education meeting, the Board approved a contract with DLA Architects to create the architectural design work for a potential new fine arts center at Barrington High School.
In this video, teachers Katelynn Giordano and Mark Toerpe, as well as Station Campus and Prairie Campus students, share how the new classroom additions at each school are helping to improve and reshape the educational experience for students.
Construction is currently underway at Barrington High School. Construction is set to begin this summer at Arnett C. Lines, Barbara B. Rose, North Barrington, and the Early Learning Center!
On March 17, 2020 registered voters in the Barrington 220 community overwhelmingly passed a $147 million bond referendum, which will greatly impact the future of our schools. The question was approved by more than 60% of voters.
Barrington 220 is working with architecture firm DLR Group and Pepper Construction to complete the projects. The timeline for construction is anticipated to last until 2025. It is divided into three phases:
Design: time needed to review concepts, produce construction documents, and receive authorization from the Board to release for bidding
Bid: time needed for prospective bidders to get drawings, estimate and submit bids for the design, and the construction team to analyze and formulate recommendations for Board approval
Build: time needed to award contracts, purchase materials, construct, and once completed, turn over the facility to the school district to occupy.
The district's Referendum Construction Steering Committee is helping lead the Design, Bid and Build phases. Schools which are currently in the “Build” phase include: BHS and Hough Street. Schools which have completed the "Build" phase include: Countryside, Grove, Prairie, Roslyn Road, Station and Sunny Hill.
Arnett C. Lines, Barbara B. Rose, North Barrington and the Early Learning Center will enter the “Build” phase in Summer 2023.
