Exploration of Operating Rate Increase Referendum

The Peotone CUSD 207U Board of Education has begun to explore the possibility of putting a referendum question on the ballot for the March 17, 2020 election. The question would likely ask the taxpayers to approve an operating rate increase. This new limiting rate would allow the district to levy property taxes at a level the State of Illinois expects from the community. This amount of local funding is based on the property wealth of the district in comparison to all other districts in the State of Illinois.

 As part of this research, it is important to understand what questions and comments the taxpaying community would like to have addressed. The District's Board and Administration encourage you to send all questions and comments surrounding a possible referendum to This email address will be continually monitored but you should NOT expect a direct response to your question or comment. The feedback from the community will be used to craft educational materials and presentations that directly address the needs of the community.
