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.
