Ever since the Township High School District 113 Board of Education voted Jan. 14 to place an $89 million referendum on the April 9 ballot to help fund a $114 million renovation of Highland and Deerfield High Schools, there has been no shortage of opinion.
Before the Board made its decision, citizens were engaged with numerous meetings and six different committees involving members of the community at large as well as teachers and administration since shortly after a $133 million referendum failed two years ago.
Patch wants to know what its readers think and has designed an unscientific poll to measure interest. The results will be published later in the week.
Take a look what has been written since the Board vote in January, including letters to the editor and blogs expressing personal opinions, since and a little published before that and share your opinion.
