The Oak Park Advantage
THANK YOU, OAK PARK COMMUNITY! 
Dear Oak Park Families, Residents, & Community,

We want to sincerely thank our community for your support of the Oak Park School District 2021 Bond Proposal, which was passed by voters today with a nearly 80% YES vote. With the passage of the $54.445 million bond, administrators and staff are excited and hard at work planning for the future of our schools! The plans for the improvements are student-centered and prioritize the critical health and safety upgrades of our aging facilities.
Features of the 2021 Bond Program include the following areas:
 
  • Critical Infrastructure
  • Mechanical & Plumbing Upgrades
  • Electrical Upgrades
  • Technology Replacement
A more detailed list of projects can be found on the district’s website at www.oakparkschools.org. To learn more about specific details, please visit www.oakparkschools.org/bond where will continue to provide updates to staff, families and the community.
Again, thank you!!!
 
Sincerely,
Jamii J. Hitchcock, Ph.D.
Superintendent

Pursuant to Public Act 257 of 2020, legislation was passed that appropriated funding for the GSRP, Head Start, Adult Education, and Young Adult Special Education Teachers COVID-19 Grant Program. This program provides grants to eligible GSRP, head start, adult education, young adult special education classroom teachers in a district or nonprofit nonpublic school spent outside of normal working hours and additional costs classroom teachers have incurred or experienced to provide a continuity of learning during the period of school closure in 2019-2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Oak Park Advantage

The Oak Park Advantage is a holistic approach to education that not only prepares students academically, fosters a sense of belonging but creates long-lasting connections to the Oak Park community. While attending Oak Park Schools, students develop a confidence that is woven throughout their post-secondary, professional and social-emotional well-being years after they graduate.
