Thank You, Glenview!

On March 17, 2020, the community approved a capital (facilities) referendum that allowed District 34 to offer full-day kindergarten beginning in the 2022-2023 school year. This positive impact will be felt for generations.  The District appreciates the support of the community, and we recognize that we are tasked with Building Future for decades to come.

Thank you D34 Community
