Summer Construction 2022

This summer we have been busy creating a safer and more modern campus! An estimated $34.4 million of construction has been underway in the Crete-Monee School District 201-U this summer to create a safer and more enhanced teaching and learning space for our students and staff. Identified summer projects came from the district’s short-term facility improvement plan and supports the District Strategic Plan goal to provide our students with equitable, safe, and well-maintained facilities.

Most of this summer’s renovations are intended to address life safety needs (fire protection sprinkler systems, unit ventilators), improve heating and cooling systems, introduce better and more cost-effective lighting, and address electrical issues.

Breakdown of Improvements:

  • Balmoral Elementary School – Heating and Cooling System
  • Coretta Scott King Magnet School – Life Safety & Heating and Cooling System
  • Crete Elementary School – Life Safety & Heating and Cooling System
  • Monee Education Center – Life Safety & Heating and Cooling System
  • Talala Elementary School – Life Safety, Heating and Cooling System & Electrical Repair
  • Early Learning Center – Life Safety, Heating and Cooling System & Electrical Repair, Updated Playground Equipment
  • Crete-Monee High School – Introduce LED Lighting

Other renovation projects include adding electronic signage and marquees throughout the district and new playground enhancements at the Early Learning Center.

We are excited to share that construction will begin this fall on our new addition to the Crete-Monee High School. The additional square footage will offer more space for the district to expand career and technical education opportunities for students.

All of these projects will be completed with long-term financing using working cash and funding bonds.
