The new front atrium addition is now open!
The Board of Education is planning to form a referendum advisory committee to gain feedback from the community about projects that should be included in a potential referendum question during the 2024-25 school year.
By the end of the 2023-24 school year, all Barrington 220 elementary schools will have a dedicated STEM lab inside their buildings.
The new athletic/PE complex on the north side of BHS includes new tennis courts, a new multi-purpose turf field, a newly renovated varsity baseball field, and a newly renovated Fields of Dreams complex!
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.
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: Barrington High School, Barbara B. Rose Elementary, and North Barrington Elementary. Schools that have completed the "Build" phase include: Arnett C. Lines, Countryside, Grove Avenue, Hough Street, Prairie Campus, Roslyn Road, Station Campus, Sunny Hill, and the Early Learning Center.
