About District 87
In an effort to expand and improve the opportunities for our students District 87 would like to acquire a new building to help make this possible. As of now, our Early Childhood Education Center (Sarah Raymond School) is at capacity, the current building simply doesn't have the space to take in more students. By acquiring the OAB our Early Childhood Education Program would be able to increase enrollment by at least 30%. Currently, there is a waiting list for Sarah Raymond, and we are not able to service all the children needing/wanting to enroll in preschool.
This larger structure will also be able to provide specialized space for programs offered at the Bloomington Area Career Center including dedicated spaces that are already set up for classes such as Culinary Arts and Auto/Welding.
