IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Dear Community Members of Blackhawk School District:
 
In the past several months, members of the Board of School Directors have been approached by concerned district residents re: the current state of the Northwestern sports complex and the Northwestern School.  Northwestern is rapidly approaching its 60th birthday and continues to be a concern to District officials.  Necessary repairs to the building are quite costly.  Along with that is the need for electrical updates, renovations in the kitchen and lockers rooms, replacing aging equipment and paying for ongoing maintenance is an added expense.  Finally, the sports complex is inferior to today’s complexes that are used throughout the community for various groups, functions and occasions.  A group of concerned teachers, coaches, administrators, commissioners and several citizens in leadership positions have held two meetings to organize working groups with the purpose of identifying all options.  Although several School Directors and the Superintendent attend the meetings, there are no decisions made or votes cast.  The group is currently putting together reports and hopes to be prepared for public meetings in January.  Please visit the website often and stay current with our progress and learn about the dates, times and locations of community meetings.  All residents are invited to take the survey posted on our website.
 
Sports Complex Committee is researching the following:
 
1.       What are the assets and liabilities of current field and stadium
2.       What revenue can be generated from hosting events on a turf field
3.       What are the effects on property values
4.       What is the possibility of completing the project in phases
 
Fundraising committee members and related activities are exploring:
5.       What corporate donations can be generated
6.       How will we “sell” the idea to potential donors if a new stadium is proposed
7.       Determination of fundraising goals
8.       Determination of fundraising donor levels:  e.g. silver, gold, platinum, bronze, patron
 
On the Northwestern side, the assignments are as follows:
1.       Instructional Limitations currently at Northwestern
2.       Implications of radon and mold recurring issues
3.       “Going Green” sustainable projects related to energy and conservation
4.       Making a new building “tech friendly” for now and in the future
5.       Asbestos Removal
6.       Looking at other energy friendly new schools or under construction
