School Consolidation Campaign

In 1992 an ad hoc committee requested a study of the future of education in Bloomington-Normal, beginning what would become a campaign for consolidation of the two school districts, #87 and #5. A formal committee, as mandated by statute, called the “Committee of Ten” organized to prepare a petition to organize a new community unit school district. After the filing of that petition, a public hearing was held by the district superintendent, who approved the petition. In order to prepare for a referendum, a series of informational meetings were held to inform the public of the advantages of consolidation. The referendum was voted on and defeated in 1996.
