Meeting To Discuss New High School In Bluford Slated For June 1st

(BLUFORD, IL) — An informational public meeting to share community plans for a new high school in the community of Bluford will be held on Thursday June 1st at 6:30 p.m. at Bluford Grade School gym. The old Webber Township High School building has not been used for active classes in two full school years, was condemned in 2016, and a recent Illinois State Board of Education inspection indicated that the building would be unsafe and unfit for occupancy due mold and structural problems. Webber Township High School and Bluford Grade School have shared facilities since. The new plans would call for an addition to the existing Bluford Grade School and a high school addition on the same property.
