Evanston/Skokie residents are invited to learn more about the important work happening in D65 schools, the current financial situation, options to balance the budget, and what a referendum actually means at several upcoming information sessions.

McGaw YMCA - Chinnock Lounge (1000 Grove Street)


The District has balanced its budget for the past 15 years while keeping reductions as far from the classroom as possible. For this reason, options for further budget reductions are limited. There are two options on the table - continue to make reductions ($8.8 million over the next two years alone) or increase revenue through an operating referendum ($14.5 million per year). On April 4, registered voters in Evanston/Skokie will have the opportunity to weigh in by voting on the referendum.

Detailed information including frequently asked questions, estimated tax impact of the referendum, a full listing of upcoming information sessions, resources, and more are currently available at
