Board of Ed Sets Vote for Tuesday, Oct. 18 to Amend 2017 Bond Project

The Elwood School District’s Board of Education adopted a resolution at its July 7 meeting to present a proposal to the community to amend the bond project approved by voters in 2017. The amended project, if approved by voters, would now include a turf athletic field at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School at a cost of an additional $2.45 million.

“Our Board of Education and administration greatly value community input,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kenneth Bossert. “After hearing from a large percentage of our community regarding the addition of a turf field, we are asking our community to reconsider this portion of the bond work.”

In addition to replacing the existing grass field with turf, the project includes the installation of new football and soccer goalposts, as well as lacrosse goals and accessories. Perimeter safety netting would also be installed, and new high jump, long jump and pole vault runways would be added.

If approved, field work would likely be completed next summer.

Additional information regarding the proposal will be sent to community residents in early fall. The district is also planning on a community forum to address any questions that community members may have. District residents are encouraged to visit the district’s website,, for more information on the proposal.

The vote is set for Tuesday, Oct. 18, from 6 a.m.-9 p.m. in the Elwood Middle School cafeteria. All eligible residents are encouraged to participate in this important vote!
