Referendum Funds Phase Two


In March 2020, voters approved a $30.7 million bond referendum to allow Lake Villa Community Consolidated School District 41 to pay for much-needed improvements for the maintenance and infrastructure for our District’s schools. 

Last year, many projects were completed in each of the four schools. Because of the age of the facilities, most of the work occurred at Hooper and Palombi schools. Last year all four schools installed efficient LED lighting which has provided the district with over $100,000 in incentives from Com Ed with more in the years to come.

The Board again would like to thank our community for investing in the education of our students and providing our excellent teachers with the best learning and teaching environment we possibly can.
