The Barrington 220 Board of Education's 2024 Referendum Advisory Committee will assist the Board in identifying key components to be included in a referendum question proposed for the November 5, 2024 election ballot. The 2024 Referendum Advisory Committee will make a final recommendation to the Board of Education by the June 4, 2024 Board of Education meeting. The final decision of what will be asked on a potential referendum question rests with the Board. If the Board decides to place a referendum question on the November 2024 ballot, it must approve the question in August 2024.

The committee consists of approximately 60 members representing all district attendance areas and grade levels, as well as members of local Barrington community organizations. 

Meetings are open to the public, however, only committee members may participate and vote.

Beginning this Spring, as we look to wrap up the semester we wanted to allow all classes to wrap up and to re-emphasize the importance of attendance. Students should be physically present on these days for all rostered classes. The only periods students do not have to be in the building are for lunch or a scheduled open period.

ALL classes will meet to wrap up the semester in a way that aligns with the curriculum and expectations for the course. For example, Physical Education classes will meet, and students will participate in BFit activities and complete a checkout process. Resource classes and Academic Support classes will also meet to provide support to students in wrapping up the year. Some classes will have assessments,  exams, or other academic work to complete.

    My favorite part of my job is watching the transition that occurs in our students from freshmen year to senior year. I am lucky enough to watch this growth and maturity while guiding them a bit along the way. It makes me proud to be in this profession and be a part of the Barrington process.Barbara BarreiroLife Skills Department Chair

    Barrington 220 is a place where students establish the fundamentals to forge their own paths. We read, write, think, discuss, and create. As a current faculty member and proud graduate of Countryside, Prairie, and BHS, I look forward to working with students every day to create the next generation of thinkers, learners, and creators. There's nowhere else I'd rather teach. I'm proud to work in Barrington 220 and I'm glad you're here.Cary WaxlerSocial Studies Teacher
