The District 204 School Board is moving forward with the creation of an innovative new multi-district school.
The board approved a plan to proceed with the John C. Dunham STEM partnership agreement, pending legislative changes.
Originally, the legislation stated that four schools would be included in the partnership. However after Oswego School Board decided not to join, the law will now state two or more school districts as part of the partnership.
The STEM school would be the first of its kind in the nation. Located at Aurora University, it will focus on a curriculum based on science, technology, engineering, and math for grades three through eight.
“We are excited about this opportunity not only for the students but for the faculty as well. Its a good thing we can continue and move forward,” said School Board President, Lori Price.
Aurora University will hold a series of informational meetings to inform the public about the new school.
