News in Brief: Referendum Fails, It’s Back to District 113’s Only Non-Broken Drawing Board

By Gunther Hausmann

After the District 113 referendum was shot down by a margin of 2,041 votes on Tuesday night, the school board and other referendum supporters headed back to the drawing board to come up with a new plan. However, they quickly realized all of the drawing boards are broken and they don’t have the money to replace them.

They tried to conduct a preliminary brainstorming session without a drawing board in an X-Hall classroom but it was too cold to focus. So they moved to a Q-Hall classroom that was too hot. The group then decided to hold the meeting on the pool deck but were unable to breathe.

They hope to find a space conducive to learning or referendum proposing in DHS or HPHS by 2014.
