CFST Meeting

Parents, Students, Grandparents, and All Vermilion County Community Members Invited to Attend

The referendum decision on the April 4th election date is quickly approaching.  Because the referendum decision on a proposed County School Facility Tax has great significance to our schools and community, Westville School District is participating in several school and community meetings to help educate voters about the issue.  There will be multiple opportunities to learn about the issues and ask questions.  Parents, students, grandparents, and community members are all encouraged to attend any one of these short information meetings.  Refreshments will be provided.
