Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School is inviting the community to attend information sessions to learn more about preparations for its upcoming Fine Arts Facility Expansion Project. This project is one of the next steps in District 233’s Long Range Facilities & Maintenance Plan, a plan that ensures as the school’s curriculum evolves and as technology continues to influence teaching and learning, H-F’s facilities can meet the expectations of future students. 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 with no additional tax burden placed on the community.
Recently, the school added a new academic program: the Media, Visual & Performing Arts Academy (MVP), a unique two-year sequence that gives students the opportunity to develop their talent in an art-focused field. In tandem with the creation of this program, administrators and teachers have seen a need to renovate and expand space for its growing Fine Arts Department. In the near future, the district is looking to also address a need to expand and improve its Applied Academics Department and Project Lead the Way/STEM classroom spaces.
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. The greater H-F community is invited to take part in information sessions held at the school on the following days:
Monday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. in the South Building Room E1
Thursday, Nov. 9, at 9 a.m. in the South Building TLC and at 7 p.m. in the South Building Room E1
At the sessions, attendees can view a presentation about the facilities plan, ask questions and provide direct feedback. An electronic survey will be also be available for those who cannot attend a session at the school’s website.
