Minooka C.C.S.D. 201 has a $50,000,000 Referendum on the ballot to build a new 5-8 building to alleviate the overcrowding in our district. This additional space will benefit the entire 5-8 grade population by lowering class sizes, offering more opportunities for extra curricular activities, allowing more students to participate in the extra curricular activities, allowing appropriate learning spaces for our fine arts and PE classes, alleviate hallway overcrowding, and to accommodate all students in lunch periods that are at appropriate times.
ELEVEN teachers already share a classroom or teach off of a cart, class sizes have increased, and hallways are packed.
Lunch periods are near capacity. MJHS will need to add a lunch period with the only options being to start at 9:35 am or to end at 2 pm.
We are OUT of gym space. The music room now functions as an additional gym space, causing music to be pushed into a regular classroom.
Students are LOSING study hall time due to overcrowded passing periods.
Administration and Student Services have seen an increase in students reporting difficulty navigating the building during passing times due to volume in halls and crowds around locker spaces.
A high number of students are UNABLE to participate sports and extra curricular activities due to enrollment numbers. 5th grade band rehearsal time has been cut in HALF due to supervision and safety concerns.
