Butler School District 53 Capital Improvements Vision

On Monday, December 13, 2021, the Board of Education approved project funding that supports the previously approved capital improvements vision plan to enhance both Brook Forest Elementary and Butler Junior High School over the next three years. We are thrilled about the future of our physical infrastructure and the pathways to continue making our award-winning school district an excellent place to learn, teach, and grow Beyond All Limits.

The Capital Improvements Vision Plan will be carried out in three phases. Phase I will kick off in April 2022 and will focus on initial classroom renovations and administrative space for collaboration at Butler Junior High School. At Brook Forest Elementary, Phase I will include a new elevator for greater ADA accessibility, enhanced vestibule for increased security, and renovation of administrative offices. These projects are necessary in order to pave the way for the future teaching and learning improvements in Phases II and III.

We are excited about how this will continue to enhance the educational learning environments, safety, and accessibility of our buildings for current and future students within District 53.
