Elmwood Park C.U.S.D. #401 Receives Top School Design Award
Elmwood Park School District #401 has been named as one of the two 2015 Award of Distinction winners in the annual Invitational Exhibition of Educational Environments, sponsored by IASB Service Associates. DLA Architects, Ltd. was honored for a new addition and remodel of the Elmwood Park High School.
This is the 27th year for the competition.
The awards were presented on Friday, November 20, at the 2015 Joint Annual Conference in Chicago. Winning projects were selected by a blind-jury pool of architects and superintendents. In addition to the two Award of Distinction winners, the jury chose three projects for Awards of Merit and three Honorable Mention recipients.
All 23 entries in this year’s exhibit were on display throughout Conference.
Elmwood Park community members, students and staff were invited to attend the Elmwood Park High School’s walk-through Open House of the new addition on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, between 5-7 p.m. Although final construction is scheduled for August 2015, the Board welcomed everyone in town to come in and see the working progress of the new addition that will greatly benefit Elmwood Park students, especially in the area of science education.
Tours were provided to those interested in viewing the construction site. A formal dedication of the high school’s new addition will be held later in the fall.

Elmwood Park C.U.S.D. #401 will soon embark on a major facilities construction project that will benefit students for many years to come. As a part of the district’s Long Range Plan, the Board of Education recently spent several months determining how to best address facility improve­ment issues. As a component of this process, the board approved the sale of just over $15 million in working cash bonds to provide buildings with necessary upgrades and construct new learning spaces.
