LOCATION: BHS Front Atrium (Lower Level) 

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 vote.

    I love teaching art to my wonderful Rose students. Not only do I get to inspire them, but they inspire me as well. They make me want to work harder, be a better person, and achieve more every year.

    I love teaching kindergarten because the children come to school with a "blank slate" and I get to be a part of their first school experience. Rose School is a wonderful place to learn and grow! Once a stingray, always a stingray!Jen WessbergTeacher
