Bond issue for new Illini West High School back on April ballot

Posted:
CARTHAGE, Ill. (WGEM) -

Voters in April will once again decide if Illini West should build a new high school.

In November, voters overwhelmingly shot down a referendum to issue $9 million in bonds for a new facility in Carthage.

Superintendent Kim Schilson says the new bond proposal has been lowered to $8 million and they are taking a harder look at security.

Schilson says their current high school is cramped and technologically outdated.

Public hearings will soon be scheduled to educate voters on the new referendum.
