Evanston Central Core School
The central core families sought a new, high-quality, public neighborhood school. Period. How that might be accomplished was a mystery, but they wanted it done for their children and community now.
The challenge was simple yet unprecedented: How to pay for a new public school, but
There was no roadmap. This had never been done before.
Our solution – using no tax referendum, no tax increase, no fund raising, without causing other school closings, and without burdening the district’s finances – provides for a completely new, high-quality neighborhood public school. And it restores many of the social and cultural amenities that had been lost, while adding a few new ones in a larger community campus.
Based on our solution, the school district in early 2022 unanimously approved the new neighborhood school for the central core community.
