Fine Arts Facility Expansion Project
District 233 is entering the next exciting phase of its Long Range Facilities & Maintenance Plan. For nearly 10 years, Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School has been working to develop the MVP Fine Arts Academy, as well as assessing its current and long-term facility needs. The district has been saving funds for this future renovation and expansion, and it anticipates being able to fully fund this project through its capital project fund. The inaugural MVP Academy class will be auditioning this winter and as they are applying, the district is determining how to best meet the needs of these talented students and the programming needs of our award-winning, expanding Fine Arts Department. In the coming months, the district will be working with teachers, students, parents and community members to identify specific needs and to determine the project scope. A dedicated committee, representative of the preceding groups, will be formed to help guide the project.
The district is looking to also address the need to improve its Applied Academics Department and Project Lead the Way/STEM classroom spaces. These exciting projects — along with more standard improvements, such as swimming pool updates, roof and parking lot replacement schedules — are part of the district’s Long Range Facility & Maintenance Plan. (See recently completed projects from this plan at left.) This plan ensures that as H-F’s curriculum evolves and technology continues to influence teaching and learning the district’s facilities can meet the expectations of future students.
Community input is vital to the success of our school. You will be invited to take part in community information sessions to help refine the plans and guide the Board of Education as it moves forward with this important plan for H-F’s future.
