What: District 113 has been developing a long range facility plan for Deerfield and Highland Park High Schools that addresses education, infrastructure, technology, repair, and maintenance needs. The district wrapped up a year-long study group process, hired the architecture firm Perkins & Will and the construction management firm Gilbane, completed structural testing on 100-year-old buildings at HPHS, and selected a Steering Committee of community members to oversee the design process.

Perkins & Will will update residents on the master plans for DHS and HPHS at two upcoming community engagement meetings (also see listing for November 27). Each meeting will be unique, and architects will present different information. District 113 encourages residents to attend both meetings to learn about the master planning process and to provide feedback. Perkins & Will will use that feedback to continue to develop their plans and will present updated information at the next meeting.
