logoUnit 5’s mission is to educate each student to achieve personal excellence. Our students have access to opportunities few other districts provide. While enjoying all the benefits of a big school district, our staff works tirelessly to build relationships and foster a sense of connectedness with students and families.

To put Unit 5 on more stable financial footing and ensure our students continue to have access to the quality education they deserve, we need our community to come together to collaborate on a plan for the future of our school district.  Over the next several months, we will be engaging members of the community to help us develop a sustainable, long-term plan for Unit 5’s future. We hosted three public engagement sessions to help us review our options. 

Last month, Unit 5 kicked off its community engagement process by hosting three public meetings to engage members of the community to help develop a sustainable, long-term plan for Unit 5's future. Based on feedback from those meetings, Unit 5 is assembling information to address the district's future needs, and again we would like your guidance on how to proceed. 

We are continuing this community-driven process by hosting three more public engagement sessions.

You are invited to attend one of these sessions:

  • Wednesday, May 18 - 6 to 7:30 pm - Parkside Junior High School, 101 N. Parkside Road, Normal

  • Monday, May 23 -- 6 to 7:30 pm - Normal Community High School, 3900 E. Raab Road, Normal

  • Tuesday, May 24 -- 6 to 7:30 pm - Virtual Meeting - To attend the virtual meeting, participants should register using this link.  

Here is a link to the presentation in Phase 1.

We hope you are able to attend one of the public engagement sessions that will help determine the future of our schools.
